EA has announced that Battlefield 1943, Battlefield: Bad Company, and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will be removed from digital storefronts on April 28. The games are also slated to have their online services shut down on December 8.
While Battlefield 1943 was a multiplayer-focused title and will be essentially lost forever with this move, Battlefield: Bad Company and Bad Company 2 will still have their offline game modes available, which includes their single-player campaigns.
Battlefield 1943 was released as a digital-only game on the PS3 and Xbox 360, and was the first time console players could fight on the Wake Island map, which was originally only available on PC Battlefield games. It was the third Battlefield to be released on consoles.
While Battlefield: Bad Company was available only on the PS3 and Xbox 360, it was the first game to introduce the Gold Rush mode, which is now regarded as a staple for the Battlefield multiplayer experience in its current form known as Rush. Both Bad Company games also had a greater emphasis on their narratives, featuring a single group of soldiers from the eponymous Bad Company.
