Electronic Arts announced today that it will close several of its Facebook games including The Sims Social, SimCity Social, and Pet Society on June 14. EA said that though the games attracted millions of users initially, play time has been down dramatically resulting in the closing of several games. Players that still have in-game currency are urged to spend it as soon as possible. There is no word if refunds will be issued to those who purchased unused currency.

Despite the closing of several EA Facebook games, other PopCap Facebook games including Bejeweled Blitz, Plants vs Zombies Adventures and Solitaire Blitz will remain open.
