Bandai Namco Entertainment has announced that it’s pulling the plug on Jump Force. Digital game, downlodable content, and other in-game content sales will end on February 7th, 2022, and online services will be ceased on August 24th, 2022.
Jump Force released in 2019. Bandai Namco didn’t provide a reason for “sunsetting” the Spike Chunsoft-developed title, but it presumably didn’t see enough action for the company to continue online services. Back in May 2021, Jump Force headlined the PlayStation Now lineup.
Read the full announcement and details below.
Everyone at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment would like to offer our sincere thanks to all Jump Force players and fans for their years of support. Today, we are announcing the end of Jump Force’s availability through digital purchase in the Americas. Jump Force will cease to be available for base game, DLCs and virtual currency purchase on 2/7/2022 at 5:00pm PST for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
Additionally, some of the Jump Force online service servers will be sunsetting on 8/24/2022; however, all single player functions will continue to be playable locally on your home console or PC, as well as PVP battle, except the Ranked Match mode.
