The mobile game Star Wars: Uprising has been pulled from app stores and is no longer possible to download. The game will officially shut down on November 17 at 9 a.m. PT
The news was shared through an official blog post on the developer’s website. According to the team, Star Wars: Uprising simply wasn’t popular enough to maintain further support, which sadly led to the decision to take the servers offline altogether.
Dear Player, Despite the best efforts of our team here at Kabam, unfortunately, Star Wars: Uprising will soon be decommissioned. On November 17th, 2016, all Star Wars: Uprising servers will be shutting down permanently. As part of this shut down we will be discontinuing down payments on November 17th, 2016 to prevent additional payments from occurring. We hope enjoyed Star Wars: Uprising, and would like to invite you to check out Kabam’s other mobile games, listed below. Finally, we would just like to again thank you for your commitment to Star Wars: Uprising. We hope to see you again soon! Sincerely, The Kabam Team
This follows Spirit Lords by the same developer witch is also getting shut down. The game was basically the same core game, just Uprising added in a Star Wars theme.
For Star Wars fans, this is sad because the game’s story actually was canon and took place between the first two movie trilogies. And the game overall was a solid free-to-play action-RPG
