NFSW EndoftheWorld EventSmall
The End of the World was a special event that began on April 15th, 2015 and ran until the closure of Need for Speed: World on July 14th, 2015.

A series of unique offers were made available to the remaining players of Need for Speed: World that were be in effect for the duration of the event.

April 15th, 2015 - The Race is Coming to an End

The closure of Need for Speed: World was announced on April 15th, 2015 through an article posted on the official Need for Speed: World website.[1] The purchase of Speedboost and registration of new accounts were disabled following the announcement.

The closure of Need for Speed: World is part of a movement across Electronic Arts' free-to-play branch that includes the closure of Battlefield Heroes, Battlefield Play4Free, and FIFA: World.

An article was published soon after by Patrick Söderlund, Executive Vice President of EA Studios and a founder of Digital Illusion CE, highlighting a decrease in popularity amongst players and changes in gameplay engagement as key points for stopping any further development for these titles.

Some of our other PC free-to-play games are not as popular as they once were. So we find ourselves announcing the tough decision today that we are stopping development and winding down support for four PC free-to-play titles: Battlefield Heroes™, Battlefield™ Play4Free, Need for Speed™ World and FIFA World.
In more than five years since most of these titles launched, how we play games has changed dramatically. These were pioneering experiences, and we’re humbled that, over the years, so many of you joined us to enjoy the games and the community.
— Patrick Söderlund[2]
