The Sims 2 TheSims2.com Closing on 14th January 2013 Posted on December 15, 2012 9 0 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Share on Pinterest Share on Tumblr All patches are available to download from our website. Since the release of The Sims 3 not much has happened over at TheSims2.com, and it appears that EA believes now is the time to retire it’s online features and website. This means that all patches, blogs, the exchange, and so on will no longer be available to view. I am also presuming the web page The Sims 2 launcher opens will no longer be active either. If you wish to save anything from the website, such as a download from the exchange, make sure you do before the online services are terminated. Mind you, 8 years of operation isn’t bad.
