Jump Force’s online services will be shut down next year, with multiplayer lobbies and other internet-dependent features ending on Aug. 24, 2022, according to a statement released by the publisher on Wednesday. After that date, users will be allowed to enjoy the game’s offline options, according to Bandai Namco.
The Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One versions of Jump Force are also affected by the closure.
it was first released in February 2019 for PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One, with a Nintendo Switch version following in August 2020. Jump Force, created by Spike Chunsoft, brings together characters from the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine for team bouts. Bleach, Dragon Ball, Fist of the North Star, Hunter x Hunter, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, My Hero Academia, Naruto, One Piece, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and more were among the 40 playable combatants (plus 14 more via DLC).
Fans and pundits alike were divided over Jump Force. The game’s battle system was slammed in Polygon’s review, which termed it “boring” and that it lacked the color, vitality, and innovation of its manga source material.
