Motor City Online going offline

EA will close the online muscle-car racing game in August and will offer to give subscribers a copy of another online EA game.


EA has revealed that Motor City Online's run will be coming to an end this August, and subscribers will be billed for the last time in July. The closure was attributed to the lack of growth in the game's community, and the development team that has been supporting Motor City Online will be assigned to other game projects. The Motor City Online team has posted more details on how the game will wrap up and on the history of the game.

The racing game, released in 2001, lets players customize and race classic muscle cars. For more details, check out our previous coverage of the game.
