EA to close SimCity Social, The Sims Social, Pet Society

Three of Playfish’s Facebook games — SimCity Social, The Sims Social and Pet Society — are being closed June 14, publisher Electronic Arts announced today, citing a drop-off in the player base and activity for each game.

“After millions of people initially logged in to play these games, the number of players and amount of activity has fallen off,” said EA. “For people who have seen other recent shutdowns of social games, perhaps this is not surprising.”

Seems like the fix is in for Playfish.
