Final whistle! EA to stop supporting FIFA Mobile on Windows phones
EA Sports just announced that it will stop supporting FIFA Mobile on Windows phones. FIFA Mobile will be supported on Windows phones until November 7, which is the official date when EA will kill support for its super-popular football simulation.
The game is still available in the Windows Store, without any indicators of the end of its life. However, EA announced the bad news for all FIFA Mobile players on Windows phones on Facebook a few days ago.
Here’s what the post says:
“On November 7, we will be turning off all online functions for FIFA Mobile for Windows mobile devices. We would like to thank everyone who has played and enjoyed the game this past year.
The EA SPORTS FIFA Mobile Team”
Although EA Sports hasn’t given us the exact reason why it decided to retire FIFA Mobile on the Windows Mobile platform, the answer to that question is more than obvious. Namely, as you probably Windows Mobile holds just 0.1% of the global smartphone market share. Therefore, running and maintaining FIFA Mobile on such platform is probably not profitable.
The game itself is pretty well-made, as players have no major complaints about it. In fact, most of the players are quite satisfied with how the game looks and works. So, we’re sure a couple of thousand active players on Windows Mobile will be disappointed by EA’s decision. FIFA Mobile remains supported on Android and iOS.
