And what did you expect? To they keep servers online until end of time?
Anyway game was already dead in last year while servers were online.
Exactly. There's no point keeping the game up if there's nobody playing and they're losing money. Some companies go to the point where microtransaction profits go below the amount needed to pay the license fees, and NFS had A LOT of licensed content.
I feel the same way about Nitto Legends closing back in 2014. I miss the game to bits, but they pretty much had no choice, they were LOSING money on it for quite some time, kept it up as long as they could for the community - But then Glu Mobile bought out the studio and they shut the game down.
