Before the whole microtransactions and greedy company stereotype, EA was known for putting out some great games that have made for some incredibly fond memories. You can still reminisce about those great moments, only for a limited time. It’s because EA is removing its Old Battlefield Games.

In an announcement post on the EA Website and via the official Battlefield Twitter Page, it was revealed that EA would be removing some hard-hitting Battlefield tiles from all digital stores. That accounts for titles the likes of Battlefield 1943, Battlefield: Bad Company 1, and 2.
Starting April 28 2023, Battlefield 1943, Battlefield: Bad Company 1 & 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 December 8 2023. For Bad Company 1 & 2, you can still continue playing them and use their respective offline features, such as the single player campaign. – EA
But why is EA removing their old Battlefield games from digital storefronts? Evidently, you have to move on eventually. And the company is going for that approach. The live services and servers for these titles have been online for more than a decade. It’s evident that EA can’t support these servers forever.
Players that own the titles can still have a blast playing the campaign and various other offline gun modes. But make sure you buy them before their removed on April 28, 2023.
If you feel like it, you could try your luck and find some working online servers until the lines are cut later on December 8, 2023.
The company stated that they’re redirecting their efforts and services to create new memories with players. For now, Battlefield 2042 is up and running. Though underwhelming, it’s still worth a try considering it’s up for grabs on Steam and PlayStation Plus for a limited time.
