Bandai Namco to Discontinue the Digital Sale of Jump Force on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch Next Year; Online Service to End Shortly After
Bandai Namco announced that the Spike Chunsoft-developed Shonen Jump fighter, Jump Force, will end digital sale distribution for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch on February 8, 2022. Further, the online service for the game will end on August 25, 2022.
This closer of digital sales includes DLC characters and standalone versions of the game. Content that will no longer be available includes:
- Logging in to the multiplayer lobby
- Online events
- Clan functions
- Viewing the Notice Board
- Viewing the leaderboards
- Accepting Rewards from the Reward Counter
- In-game Store
- Premium Shop
- Online Ranked Match.
Content that will be available include
- Offline content
- Online battles (Not Ranked Battles)
- DLC (if purchased before the cut-off date.)
It’s sad when this happens, but this game wasn’t well-received by reviews and the fanservice was what kept it alive for as long as it was being updated. In fact, the game was being updated with new characters at the beginning of 2021.
Jump Force follows the story of how players will exist in the world of shonen characters and fight alongside them in a battle to correct evil wrongdoing. The player creates their very own avatar, customizes the avatar by choosing from a large variety of costumes and skills, and then joins the Jump Force located at the Umbras Base.
