Ubisoft Community Developer UbiCeeCee announced on July 9th, 2020 that AirMech Arena for Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 would be shutting down after six years in operation on September 6th. The full announcement follows:
There is no easy way to say this, but we will be discontinuing our service for AirMech Arena for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on September 6, 2020. If you are currently playing AirMech Arena, here’s what this means for you:
As of today, all in-game purchases are disabled and you will no longer be able to purchase Diamonds. However, you will still be able to use any Diamonds you already have in your account, to purchase items until the full closure of the game.
On September 6, we will shut down the game’s servers and you will no longer be able to log into your account. Please be sure to link your account to Uplay before September 6, and we will be in touch with you about what’s next. We want to thank the AirMech Arena community for all your support over the years. We’ll maintain our current level of support until September 6 so until then, enjoy the game!
Despite the announcement, Airmech Arena continues to be playable on Xbox consoles as of February 2021 for those who had previously downloaded it. Commentor Rafael Scarpa confirmed that the Xbox 360 version was still playable on February 3rd while other YouTube and Twitch streamers have posted recent videos of the game running on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. Neither Ubisoft nor Carbon Games has addressed this continued accessibility as of this writing.
