BattleForge free-to-play RTS from shuttered EA Phenomic closing down on October 31

BattleForge, the free-to-play RTS from EA Phenomic, will cease operations on October 31. The news was posted via an update on the game’s official website.

“The decision to retire older games is never easy,” reads the official post. “We hope you’ve enjoyed playing BattleForge as much as we enjoyed making it and we wish to extend our sincerest thanks to all of our passionate and dedicated players for supporting BattleForge over the past four years.”

Players who still have a balance of in-game currency are encouraged to spend it before the game is shut down.

EA Phenomic was shuttered in July as part of EA’s restructuring, and along with Battleforge, the developer had worked on Spellforce and Command & Conquer: Tiberium Alliances.
