AirMech Arena shutting down September 6th after six years

Ubisoft Community Developer UbiCeeCee made the announcement on July 9th that AirMech Arena for Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 would be shutting down after six years in operation. Fortunately there’s still time for fans to enjoy the game. AirMech Arena won’t be gone for good until 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!

As a free-to-play title, it hasn’t been removed from storefronts yet so if you’ve ever been interested, now is the time to try it out for yourself on Xbox 360, Xbox One, or PlayStation 4. Although the notice says in-game purchases have already been disabled, the Diamond Bundles on both stores remain available as of this writing. 

I’ve added the date to the Watch List calendar and will have a page up on the site soon. Thanks to @voltagex for pointing out the notice.
