FIFA 12 Online Services to be Discontinued

By Rebecca Smith, 3 years ago
FIFA 14 was released at the end of September, so it should come as no surprise that EA's annual ritual has come around once again. The online services for FIFA 12 will be discontinued in February 2014.

Bizarrely, the announcement of the server closure comes in the form of an in-game message and not on their Service Update page. The message simply reads: "FIFA 12 Online Services will be shut down on February 23, 2014." However the message was delivered, it doesn't change the fact that this will leave several discontinued achievements in both the main game and the "EA SPORTS UEFA EURO 2012" DLC. Here is the list of affected achievements, which are sorted by game mode:
