The anime fighting game, Jump Force, will be removed from digital stores on February 8th. This will include the base game, DLC, and virtual currency.
The publishers over at Bandai Namco have also confirmed that the Jump Force servers will be going offline come August 25th, 2022.
No official reasoning behind this has been made but it is most likely due to licensing issues and content within the game.
The official announcement came from a Twitter message by Bandai Namco themselves..
”Jump Force’s availability through digital purchase in EMEA will end on February 8, 2022, at 1 AM GMT on all platforms.”
When the servers go offline on August 25th, players will then no longer be able to use clan features, play in online lobbies, view the noticeboard, or view the leaderboards.
Jump Force was first released back in February 2019, making the game 4 years old when it gets dropped from the digital store next year.
The game pitted various iconic anime characters from a wide range of different shows such as Naruto, My Hero Academia, One Piece, and many more, against each other in combat.
It is unclear if the team will manage to sort out the licensing issues or not, thus until then fans will have less than 9 months until the servers go offline.
