Battlefield 1943, Bad Company 1 & 2 and Mirror’s Edge soon to be removed from download platforms!
Digital preservation is obviously not every publisher’s priority. Electronic Arts proves it again by announcing the imminent withdrawal of four of its productions from download platformsmaking them officially unpurchasable by new players.
It actually comes from confirm that on April 28 he will cut the servers of Battlefield 1943, Battlefield: Bad Company and Battlefield: Bad Company 2, but also those of Mirror’s Edge, whose time trials had fascinated part of the community. And, more surprisingly, he therefore decided to remove them from online storespreventing them from being purchased and redownloaded, although they remain playable by those who already own them.
As we approach 15 years since the release of Battlefield 1943, Bad Company 1 & 2, and Mirror’s Edge, we announce that their journey is coming to an end.
Starting April 28, 2023, Battlefield 1943, Battlefield: Bad Company 1 & 2, and Mirror’s Edge will be removed from digital storefronts and you will no longer be able to purchase them. This is in preparation for the retirement of online services for these titles which will take place on December 8, 2023. For Bad Company 1 & 2 and Mirror’s Edge, you can still continue to play them and use their respective offline features, such as the campaign solo. You can also read our FAQs And our service updates for more information on opting out of online services.
While these titles hold a special place in our hearts, we now look forward to creating new memories alongside you as we focus on our current and future Battlefield experiences.
If it makes sense for Battlefield 1943, an exclusively multiplayer project, this decision is highly surprising for the other three. Why not let new players approach these experiences, barely outdated and equipped with cult campaigns? Should piracy remain the only solution to enjoy games that are just 15 years old? Or Electronic Arts is he hiding his game and does he plan to sell us the bad company And Mirror’s Edge in more modern versions shortly?
In any case, in the near future, it will obviously be necessary to rely on the community to bring these experiences to life and not on the publisher himself…
