Earlier in the evening I received an e-mail from Star Wars: Uprising’s Kabam stating the game is shutting down. The game officially launched on September 9th, 2015. I was initially very excited for this game but my enthusiasm burned out rather quickly for it for various gameplay reasons and a general feeling that I wanted more from the story in the Aftermath era. That said, I am sorry to see it go and only have a year to establish itself. The game will officially shut down on November 17th, 2016.

The FAQ lists the reasons here:

1. Why is Star Wars: Uprising shutting down?
While Star Wars: Uprising was enjoyed by a great community of players since its launch, the game is no longer achieving the level of success needed to maintain the game and the decision was made to discontinue support.

2. When is the last day I can play Star Wars: Uprising?
You’ll be able to play Star Wars: Uprising until the servers are disconnected at 9AM Pacific Time on November 17th, 2016.

3. Why can’t Kabam just leave the game up as it is?
There are a number of things that go into maintaining a game beyond keeping the power running. Addressing issues, developing content and providing support are important components as well, and we feel those resources can be better served building and supporting Kabam’s existing and new titles.

4. Is there any way to save my player data or bases?
There won’t be a way to access your data from the game’s servers after they go offline. We suggest you take screenshots of your accomplishments before November 17, 2016.

5. Where can I play other games like Star Wars: Uprising?
We’re glad you enjoyed Star Wars: Uprising, and would like to invite you to check out one of Kabam’s other great mobile games.
