Game news Need For Speed: 5 episodes will be removed from the digital stores
Digital has good things … but also bad sides. Today we are unfortunately facing the darker side. With immediate effect, five titles from the Need For Speed saga will be deleted from the various digital stores.
From now on you no longer have to search for five games from the Need For Speed saga in the PlayStation Store, Steam, Origin or the Microsoft Store. In fact, Need for Speed Carbon, Need For Speed Undercover, Need For Speed Shift first and second in the name, and Need For Speed: The Run are no longer available in your favorite digital stores.
Need For Speed Carbon, Need For Speed Undercover, Need For Speed Shift, Need For Speed Shift 2: Unleashed and Need for Speed The Run will be removed from digital storefronts and May 2021 You can’t buy them anymore. Electronic Arts
Unfortunately, that’s not the only bad news of the day. Electronic Arts adds that as of May 31, in-game stores will stop offering paid cosmetics. For their part, the online services of the games will no longer be accessible from August 31st, which means that the titles’ multiplayer modes will no longer work from this date.
Decisions to quit games are never easy, but now we’re switching to focus on the future of Need For Speed. The development teams and operations staff have invested a great deal of time and passion into developing, creating, publishing and maintaining the game over the years and we look forward to seeing you play. But the number of players has reached a point where it is no longer possible to continue the work required to get Need For Speed Carbon, Need For Speed Undercover, Need For Speed Shift, Need For Speed Shift 2Shift to keep: Unleashed and Need for Speed.The Run. We hope that over the past few years you have had many victories, satisfying drifts, moments of friendly rivalry and hours of joy through these games. Electronic Arts
Of course, note that players who have already purchased one (or more) of these games will still be able to restore their property to their library despite the withdrawal of the games that are on sale in the various digital stores. Also note that the various offline modes will still be available after August 31, 2021.
