Electronic Arts has confirmed that they have no intention of resurrecting their Online Pass scheme in the wake of Microsoft's decision to scrap DRM plans for the Xbox One.

"[There is] no change to our decision to discontinue Online Pass," EA's John Reseburg told Polygon. "It is dead. 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."

He then added: "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."

The Online Pass system was terminated last month, with EA stating: "We listened to the feedback from players, and decided to do away with Online Pass. We hope that eliminating Online Pass will allow more people to play and enjoy EA games for a long time to come."
