People will still want to play this game years from now, but will EA be running the servers for what will be an "old" game?

Have EA stated how long they will run the servers for?

I guess they'll expect you to pay for the latest version of the game. Nice way to make you pay a subscription every couple of years on the sly...

Exactly. What happens in 5 years if EA turn off the servers? What then? I still play games that are age old and they work because they don't require ridiculous DRM like this.

I read that they can switch them off with just 30 days notice on their website...then you pay them for their next game I guess. This whole launch debacle just makes them seem untrustworthy so far as I can tell.

EA took Tiger Woods 10 (PS3) servers offline in 2012 so you get 2 years play for £40
