The FIFA World development team announced on April 15th, 2015 that the game would be shut down on July 14th. The full announcement and brief FAQ follows:
Today we are announcing that we are ending development of EA SPORTS FIFA World. First and foremost, we know our loyal and passionate community will be most disappointed by this news. Your feedback and support during the beta testing period was invaluable and inspiring. From everyone on the FIFA World team, we thank you.
Our goal with FIFA World was to create an authentic FIFA experience that could be enjoyed by the millions of football fans around the world who don’t have access to a console or high-powered PC. The result was FIFA World, a new PC experience that combined award-winning FIFA gameplay with a live service. After a beta of nearly 18 months, an enormous amount of feedback and some great times with our players, we just didn’t have the momentum to bring the game to a full commercial launch.
It’s a tough decision, but we believe ultimately the right one, that we stop development on the game. FIFA World beta servers will be open for the next 90 days until July 14th, when they will be permanently shut down. We encourage everyone to use any remaining FIFA Point balance by that time. While you can still spend FIFA Points you currently have, purchasing of new FIFA Points will be disabled as of today, as will the ability to register new accounts. If you have questions about this, please contact us at help.ea.com.
Once again, we thank everyone who participated in the FIFA World Beta. Our team is proud of what we have achieved with this game and we’re not done looking at new ways to bring new FIFA experiences to players around the world.
When will the game shut down?
The servers will be turned off July 14th.
What will happen in the next 90 days?
FIFA World servers will remain online until July 14th. During this period all current game modes will be playable.
Can I transfer my FIFA World players, coins or FIFA Points to other versions of FIFA?
No, FIFA World Beta is independent of other FIFA products and content cannot be transferred.
Can I still buy FIFA Points?
Purchasing of FIFA Points will be disabled. You will still be able to purchase packs with coins and any FIFA Points that you currently have. All FIFA Points you currently have must be spend by July 14th.
Are we still going to get the Team of the Week and other special content?
Live content will be reduced. New Accomplishments will be added periodically but Team of the Week and other special player releases will not continue after April 15th.
FIFA World was shut down alongside several other free-to-play titles from Electronic Arts including Battlefield Heroes, Battlefield Play4Free, and Need for Speed: World.
