Bulletstorm PS3 online to be shuttered by EA

The PlayStation 3 version of Bullestorm will have its online component pulled as part of Electronic Arts’ plans to shutter 50 game servers.

The publishing giant confirmed that the online servers will cease on June 30, and includes a number of popular PC games, such as Battlefield 2 and Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3. Curiously, only the PS3 version of Bulletstorm is affected.

It is believed the server closures are related to the imminent shuttering of GameSpy, though it was assumed EA were working to keep some of the titles – notably Battlefield and its various sequels and spin-offs – online after the company’s demise. Sadly, this is no longer the case.

The news comes in light of confirmation that a number of popular Rockstar titles, such as Grand Theft Auto IV and Red Dead Redemption, would be having their online modes trimmed in light of GameSpy’s closure.
