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

Battlefield 3, 4, And Hardline Being Delisted From PlayStation 3 And Xbox 360

EA has announced that it will delist three Battlefield titles from the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 digital storefronts at the end of the month. 

On July 31, the PS3/Xbox 360 versions of Battlefield 3, Battlefield 4, and Battlefield: Hardline, along with their associated DLCs, will be removed from sale. Owners of these games will still be able to play their single-player content, but online support for these titles will end on November 7. The embedded announcement post on X also includes a link to an FAQ to answer additional questions about the sunsetting process. 

While the digital PS3/Xbox 360 versions of these games are going away, Battlefield 3 will still be available to purchase on PC. The same is true for Battlefield 4 and Hardline, and these two titles will also remain on sale for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The PC/PS4/Xbox One versions will remain unaffected by today’s updates.

It never feels good to see games get removed from sale like this. The reason likely has to do with EA sunsetting online support; it wouldn’t be right to continue selling games with popular online modes if that component doesn’t work anymore. For those still logging into Battlefield matches on PS3 and 360, you’ve got a few more months to enjoy the ride.
