EA explains why some classic games disappeared from digital platforms

At the end of June, the GOG.com platform announced that many of the games published by EA were to be retired of the web, this as a result of a request directly from the distributor for «delist»Your classic games like Ultima Underworld, Ultima Underworld 2, Syndicate Plus, and Syndicate Wars. These games were published in the 90’s by the company, so they are very difficult to get on another digital platform, and not to mention the physical format.

How could it be otherwise, EA ended up publishing the games on GOG again, ensuring that your previous decision «did not fully consider the player’s perspective«. Such was the response from the fans, that even Chris Bruzzo, Vice President of Marketing from EA, went out to justify actions and apologize with the players. Bruzzo I assure that EA takes the time to consider changes that may affect players, and that I didn’t know that there were so many fans out there who still had such a passion for the classics.

Of course, the reason is very rare why EA would decide to download GOG games without the «consideration»Usual, something that the company did not finish explaining in the statements of Chris Bruzzo. Although it is pure speculation, maybe EA is working on something related with them; after all, both franchises have been pretty dead for a while.

Fortunately, EA reconsidered the decision. You can play again Ultima Underworld, Ultima Underworld 2, Syndicate Plus and Syndicate Wars purchased from GOG.com. Perhaps in the future we can see some kind of relaunch for these titles, as happened as the Commmand & Conquer Remastered Collection, or we could even see a complete reboot of both franchises, with ultra modern graphics and much more … Anyway, dreaming costs nothing. Stay tuned for more news!
