EA shutting down BattleForge in late October
Electronic Arts is putting an end to its free-to-play real-time strategy game BattleForge on October 31.
"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," reads a statement on the official game forums.
"The decision to retire older games is never easy. 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. Those of you who still have a balance of in-game currency are encouraged to spend it before the game is shut down on October 31 and is no longer available for play."
The massively multiplayer online card-based RTS debuted for PC in 2009, but EA reportedly shuttered the developer — Rhein, Germany-based EA Phenomic — in July, according to sources.
