EA sunsetting Battlefield 1943, Bad Company 1 & 2

Games like Bad Company 1 and 2 and Battlefield 1943 will be delisted at the end of April.


Electronic Arts is moving to sunset more games following previously announced plans to shutter Apex Legends Mobile from Respawn Entertainment, with servers set to go offline starting May 1. Joining the likes of Apex Legends Mobile in being sunset this year include Battlefield 1943, and Battlefield: Bad Company 1 and 2.

As announced by EA, these games will be delisted from digital stores starting April 28, 2023. Following this date, consumers will no longer be able to purchase these games on digital storefronts.

"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,” EA announced today, as quoted by GamesIndustry.biz.

Adding to this, EA is ending online services for these games on December 8, 2023. With that being said, games like Battlefield: Bad Company will still offer offline, single-player modes such as the game's campaign. If any of these games are ones you’d like to purchase in digital format, it’s highly recommended that you scoop them up before they’re delisted on April 28.
