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.
