EA Calling An End To The Sims Social, SimCity Social and Pet Society

Bosses can rejoice! Productivity will increase! EA has announced the closure of three popular Facebook social games.

The Sims Social, SimCity Social and Pet Society (it’s been a while) will be retired on June 14th off Facebook as resources are reallocated for other things under EA’s paws.

One game of note was The Sims Social which battled accusations that it was a copy of Zynga’s The Ville game, a lawsuit that was settled out of court just a few months ago. The three games are under Playfish, since absorbed into EA as a subsidiary brand. I haven’t spent time or real money on these, but I’m some of you sure have. That’s why a “special offer” with PopCap will be announced for affected players soon. What that entails could mean anything, especially coming from EA.
