Battlefield 3, 4, And Hardline Are Being Delisted From PlayStation 3 And Xbox 360 Storefronts This Month

EA to Delist Battlefield Titles from PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360

Electronic Arts (EA) has recently announced that three Battlefield titles will be removed from the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 digital storefronts by the end of the month.

On July 31, players will no longer be able to purchase Battlefield 3, Battlefield 4, and Battlefield: Hardline, along with their respective DLCs, from the PS3/Xbox 360 digital stores. However, those who already own these games will still be able to access and play the single-player content. Online support for these titles will officially end on November 7. You can find more information about the delisting process in the FAQ linked in the announcement post on X.

Although the digital versions of these Battlefield games will no longer be available on PS3 and Xbox 360, Battlefield 3 will still be purchasable on PC. Additionally, Battlefield 4 and Battlefield: Hardline will continue to be available for purchase on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Fortunately, the PC, PS4, and Xbox One versions of these games will not be affected by these upcoming changes.

It is always disappointing to see games being removed from sale, but EA’s decision is likely tied to sunsetting the online support for these older titles. It would not make sense to continue selling games with online modes that are no longer operational. Players still enjoying Battlefield matches on PS3 and Xbox 360 will have a few more months to enjoy the multiplayer experience before the online support ends.
