Posted on July 16, 2014 AT 06:34am

EA has announced that it will no longer be releasing any new content or bug fixes for The Sims 2, but is offering all owners of the digital edition a free upgrade as compensation.

The publisher clarified that while it will no longer be supporting the game it will still offer technical support for those who need it. Owners of a digital copy of the game should find the Ultimate Collection in their Origin library within the next five days.

“Going forward, EA will no longer be providing any new content or making any additional technical updates to The Sims 2,” the publisher explained. “If you have a problem with your game, you are of course still welcome to contact us here at EA Help.

“Everyone who had a digital copy of The Sims 2 will find the Ultimate Collection in their library within the next 5 days. Just log in to Origin and visit your My Games library.”

The latest entry in the franchise, The Sims 4, will be available from September 2.
