EA's "Superstars" series of sports games on Facebook quickly dwindled, now both Madden NFL Superstars and NHL Superstars have joined the list of "failed" games, as EA has announced the closure of both on May 13.

This closure news has been confirmed on EA's Service Updates page. As you might have guessed, the closure announcements come with the justification that resources are going to be poured into new or even existing (but more popular) games. In terms of premium currency, players of both games are encouraged to simply spend their Football Cash or Hockey Cash, with no transfer program being available to transfer that premium currency into other games.
It's worth nothing that Madden fans still have one official gameplay option on Facebook, as EA's Madden 13 NFL Social is still available for play as of this writing. Of course, whether or not this should actually bring comfort to players or not is left up in the air, as both Madden NFL Superstars and Madden NFL Social are only listed as having 100,000 players each on Facebook.
