Electronic Arts has confirmed that its Online Pass system will not be resurrected following news that the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will support used games without any limitations.
"[There is] no change to our decision to discontinue Online Pass," an EA representative told Polygon. "It is dead."
EA reiterated that the decision to kill off the Online Pass program was made after listening to feedback from the community.
"We heard the feedback from players and decided to do away with Online Pass altogether," EA said last month.
EA's Online Passes are discontinued for future games and will also be retroactively dismissed for games already on the market.
Online Passes have often been viewed as ways for developers and publishers to offset the financial shortfall of not seeing revenue when games are traded in and resold through retailers.
