However, this is not an absolute closure of Jump Force as existing players are still able to enjoy offline content such as story campaigns, online battles except ranked matches and DLCs.

The reason behind the closure of Jump Force is unknown, however, most of the speculations from the community are regarding licensing issues as Jump Force contains anime characters from various different franchises whose rights belong to various media companies.

It is not only Jump Force, another game has recently closed down after years of service.
