Jump Force to be delisted from digital storefronts early 2022

Bandai Namco has announced that Jump Force and all its DLC will no longer be available digitally on all platforms from February 8, 2022.

While no reason was given for this decision, it’s not too hard to at least make an educated guess. Anime licenses are often a nightmare — it’s the reason why the west only recently got a Super Robot Wars title — and can often cause games to be removed from sale post-launch. In the case of Jump Force, this had likely happened even with DLC still being released during 2021.

The majority of online functions will also be disabled in February, though (non-ranked) online play is going to stay. All purchased DLC will continue to function as well.

Jump Force certainly had the potential to be a huge title but, while it probably still sold OK in the long run, it didn’t really offer an enjoyable experience for a lot of Shonen Jump fans.
