"Starting April 28 2023, Battlefield 1943, Battlefield: Bad Company 1 & 2 and Mirror’s Edge will be removed from digital storefronts and you will no longer be able to purchase them," reads the announcement.

"This is in preparation for the retirement of the online services for these titles which will happen on December 8 2023. For Bad Company 1 & 2 and Mirror’s Edge, you can still continue playing them and use their respective offline features, such as the single player campaign."

Read details on the game below:

Battlefield 1943

At the time this was our third entry in the Battlefield franchise available on consoles, and took you to World War II as you fought in the Pacific as either the United States Marine Corps or the Imperial Japanese Navy.

Battlefield 1943 was only ever released as a digital game, and was exclusive to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but crucially for the first time, it offered us the ability to play Wake Island on console.

Battlefield: Bad Company

Marlowe. Sweetwater. Redford and Haggard. Four names that resonate a lot with you as Battlefield: Bad Company introduced an iconic and relatable bunch of troublemakers who risked it all and went AWOL to pursue a personal quest.

Not only has the cast and their story piqued your interest, but their endless pursuit of gold bars as you battled it out through Gold Rush – a mode that is now called Rush—added a new core mode to the Battlefield franchise. It wouldn’t be Bad Company without referencing the loveable but deadly smiley grenade did too!

It also marked the birth of the Frostbite engine and the fun and chaotic multiplayer experience that has run through Battlefield ever since.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2

The band got back together for what they thought to be their final mission within Battlefield: Bad Company 2, which involved them going behind enemy lines. However upon completion, they were tasked with heading towards South America on what became an increasingly riskier but also mysterious mission.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 was also the first time that PC players were introduced to this band of military outcasts, alongside new improvements coming to the Frostbite engine.

Mirror’s Edge

And while not a Battlefield title, many of us who work on Battlefield have also been part of the development of Mirror’s Edge. We look back fondly on Faith as an iconic character, and her parkour style gameplay.

That is a little sad to see, I did fire up Battlefield 1943 on the Xbox 360 last weekend and had a few rounds, still had full populated matches too.

For an "arcade" title that was short, sweet, only 3 maps, I played the hell out of it.

Sadly never received the promised PC release.

Mirrors Edge, Bad Company 1+2 are probably some of the best titles DICE ever put out.

I'm currently downloading all four games. Glad to hear that Battlefield 1943 still has an adequate population playing it, but is it any fun to play still?

I have recently started playing (and enjoying) Mirror's Edge Catalyst. Was the original any good?

I would personally argue it's better than Catalyst.

The art style has also held up rather wonderfully for a 7th gen unreal engine powered game.

It turns out I own the original Mirror's Edge! It looks like I got it from Games With Gold in September 2016! It's downloading now.... :D

I'm also downloading the two Battlefield Bad Company games as they're currently included in Game Pass Ultimate (via EA Play), as they got good reviews and I might as well play them before they disappear.
