EA closing BattleForge
Publisher will shut down RTS on October 31; players encouraged to spend in-game currency before game closes.
Free-to-play real-time strategy game BattleForge will be shut down on October 31, Electronic Arts has announced.
"Today we bring sad news to the world of Nyn as the rift between our worlds is coming to a close, and with this we come to the unfortunate retirement of BattleForge," the company said in a statement.
"The decision to retire older games is never easy," the statement goes on. "We hope you've enjoyed playing BattleForge as much as we enjoyed making it and we wish to extend our sincerest thanks to all of our passionate and dedicated players for supporting BattleForge over the past four years."
EA encouraged users who still have a balance of in-game currency to spend it before the game is gone for good on Halloween. BattleForge is an online fantasy-themed real-time strategy game for the PC that borrows from the world of collectible-card games
The retirement of BattleForge comes after EA reportedly closed German developer EA Phenomic in July.
