Electronic Arts (EA) recently revealed that three older Battlefield games will be delisted and their online services discontinued this November. The affected games include Battlefield 3, Battlefield 4, and Battlefield: Hardline on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles. These games will be removed from digital stores on July 31st, making them unavailable for purchase along with their downloadable content.

After July 31st, players will no longer have the option to buy these games or any related content. However, the single-player modes of these games will still be accessible even after the delisting. It’s important to note that this decision only affects the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the games. Battlefield 3 will continue to be playable on PC, while Battlefield 4 and Battlefield: Hardline will still be available on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

EA did not provide specific reasons for discontinuing these games, but it mentioned in an FAQ that such actions are usually taken for legal purposes or due to shifting player interests. The company stated, “There comes a time in every game’s lifecycle when it makes sense for us to remove it from online stores.”

This announcement follows EA’s previous decision to remove other Battlefield titles like Battlefield 1943 and Battlefield: Bad Company 1 & 2 from sale last year. The company explained that this move was part of its strategy to focus more on current and upcoming Battlefield experiences.

As EA continues to evolve its gaming offerings, fans of these classic Battlefield games will have until November 7th to enjoy the online components before they are permanently shut down. Whether players are nostalgic for these titles or looking forward to the future of the Battlefield franchise, this news marks the end of an era for these beloved games on older console platforms.
