EA has pulled five Need for Speed games from sale ahead of an August shutdown of online services.
On 31st May, EA announced the removal of Need for Speed Carbon (2006), Need for Speed Undercover (2008), Need for Speed Shift (2009), Need for Speed Shift 2: Unleashed (2011) and Need for Speed The Run (2011) from digital storefronts. In-game stores have also closed.
EA said this move, which was announced and implemented on the same day, is in "preparation" for the "retirement" of the online services for these games, which is set for 31st August. Until then, you can still play and race your friends online. But from 1st September onwards, you can play offline only.
