Electronic Arts has confirmed that it has no intention of reinstating its Online Pass system following Microsoft’s U-turn on its Xbox One DRM policy yesterday.
The Online Pass system was officially scrapped last month and the publisher is currently in the process of removing the passes from previously released titles. However, some believed that EA would bring the system back following Microsoft’s changes. The publisher has since confirmed to Polygon that this isn’t the case. “As we said a few weeks ago, none of our new EA titles will include online pass, and we are removing it from existing games as well,” EA director of corporate communications John Reseburg said.
“Nothing else on today’s news, but did want to be clear that our online pass decision was based on player feedback, and there’s no change.”
