Bad news for Battlefield fans. If scrapping one Battlefield project wasn’t enough, DICE have now announced that multiple titles in the series are being pulled offline.
In case you missed it, earlier this year EA announced that it was stopping development on Battlefield Mobile, despite the fact that it only just entered its beta period last November. At the time, EA said that it remains “highly committed to unlocking Battlefield’s enormous potential”, and that the devs are “in pre-production on our future Battlefield experiences at our studios across the globe”.
Take a look at some hilarious wins and fails from Battlefield 2042 below.
Now, as VGC reports, DICE has confirmed that Battlefield: Bad Company 1 and 2, as well as Battlefield 1943, will soon be removed from digital storefronts ahead of the titles going offline later this year. As 1943 is an online-only game, that means that it’ll be totally unplayable.
“As we close in on 15 years since the release of Battlefield 1943, and Bad Company 1 and 2, we are announcing that their journey is coming to an end,” DICE wrote in a blog post. “Starting 28 April 2023, Battlefield 1943, Battlefield: Bad Company 1 and 2 will be removed from digital storefronts and you will no longer be able to purchase them. This is in preparation for the retirement of the online services for these titles which will happen on 8 December 2023. For Bad Company 1 and 2, you can still continue playing them and use their respective offline features, such as the single player campaign.”
They continued, “While these titles hold a special place in our heart, we’re now looking forward to creating new memories alongside you as we shift our focus towards our current and future Battlefield experiences.”
If you want to buy any of those three games, you have just over a month to do so. It's truly the end of an era.
