Facebook games Madden NFL Superstars 11 & 12 and NHL Superstars will be shuttered on May 14, Electronic Arts said, citing fewer players and declining activity. On June 14, EA will shut down the Pet Society, SimCity Social and The Sims Social games on Facebook, according to EA. These Facebook-based titles were acquired by EA in its $300 million acquisition of Playfish Games in 2009, but the company has decided to concentrate development dollars elsewhere.
