BattleForge shutting down Oct. 31

BattleForge, EA Phenomic's card-based real-time strategy game, will be shut down Oct. 31, according to a post in the game's official forum.

"Today we bring sad news to the world of Nyn as the rift between our worlds is coming to a close, and with this we come to the unfortunate retirement of BattleForge," the post reads.

The free-to-play game will end its run four years after its March 2009 launch, and those with a balance of in-game currency will need to spend it before Halloween.

"Those of you who still have a balance of in-game currency are encouraged to spend it before the game is shut down on Oct. 31 and is no longer available for play," according to the post.

Reports circulating earlier this year indicated that BattleForge developer EA Phenomic had been closed. In an email to Polygon at the time, a representative from Electronic Arts declined to confirm the closure or elaborate on the current state of the studio. We've reached out to EA in light of this news and will update this article with more information as it becomes available.
