EA Server Shutdowns

The Armies of Exigo Website (thanks Frans) has word that the multiplayer servers for Black Hole's RTS game will be going offline as of October 1, 2006, saying: "You may continue to play the game up until the closure date, although certain community programs may begin to close down prior to that date." The update points to this information page that outlines more servers that are going away:

Servers for the games listed below will be shut down on the indicated dates. You may continue to play the games online up until these dates, but certain community programs may begin to close down prior to the shutdown dates.

All of us at EA would like to thank you for your valued participation in our online gaming community and hope that your enthusiasm for these games extends to our current lineup and beyond.

If you have further questions about your account or the shut down of these services, please visit http://support.ea.com.

Thank you,
Electronic Arts

What would be very cool is if they allowed consumers to host servers for these games.
