EA senior director of corporate communications John Reseburg has confirmed that the company has absolutely no plans to bring EA passes back. Reseburg reiterated that forthcoming games from the company won’t include online passes, and they are looking to remove them from existing games. Reseburg concluded that their online pass decision was based on player feedback.
“There is no change to our decision to discontinue Online Pass. It is dead. As we said a few weeks ago, none of our new EA titles will include online pass, and we are removing it from existing games as well. Nothing else on today’s news, but did want to be clear that our online pass decision was based on player feedback, and there’s no change.”
