Star Wars Uprising poster

The interactive entertainment company Kabam has just announced that their mobile Star Wars RPG game Uprising will be shutting down. The game, set in the period between ROTJ and TFA, will stop to exist on November 17th. Read on for the full details…


From Kabam:

Dear Players,

Despite the best efforts of our team here at Kabam, unfortunately, Star Wars: Uprising will soon be decommissioned. On November 17th, 2016, all Star Wars: Uprising servers will be shutting down permanently. As part of this shutdown, we will be shutting down payments today, September 22nd, 2016, to prevent additional payments from occurring. For more information about the shutdown, please visit the FAQ HERE or your in-game message.

We have also created a discussion thread HERE, and we’ll be monitoring the thread as best as we can.

We hope that you enjoyed Star Wars: Uprising, and would like to invite you to come check out one of Kabam’s other great mobile games. Finally, we would just like to again thank you for your commitment to Star Wars: Uprising. We hope to see you again soon!



  • 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.

    Crappy mobile game is crappy. Womp womp!

      Look out! Wompa attack!

    It was the lack of banthas, methinks.

  • September 25, 2016 at 12:15 am

    Good. F*ck EA.

    • September 25, 2016 at 3:41 am

      Good? People might lose their jobs over this.

      Just b/c you don’t like something doesn’t mean it needs to cease to exist. It’s not hurting you.

      • September 25, 2016 at 3:58 am

        What does that have to do with me as a customer? That I should support bad product, otherwise people will lose jobs? Really, nobody is losing a job in company that makes more games and losing a job is a little inconvenice, but you can find another, unless you are useless and unperspective person.

        • September 25, 2016 at 4:06 am

          As a customer, you might be upset that something you are playing is going away. If you didn’t like it, then just move on with your life instead of wishing hardship on others.

          If you aren’t a customer and just dislike EA, then you are just a bitter person.

          People lose jobs all the time when games shut down. It’s very common. And it’s more than a little inconvenience, it can be greatly damaging to a person and their family.

          Everyone knows this, unless you are a useless, unsympathetic person.

            So again, what does it have to do with me? It’s in my powers to save them all? Nope. Did buy Battlefront with Season Pass, so hey, I did some good for those poor souls at EA, yeeeay.

          • September 25, 2016 at 8:38 pm

            It has nothing to do with you. That’s the point. Which is why people expressing happiness at this are so odd to me.

          • September 25, 2016 at 7:32 am

            It’s simple – make good games, they get to keep their jobs. If they can’t take the heat, get a new job. F*ck EA, and f*ck Disney for allowing them to continue making this garbage.

      • September 25, 2016 at 5:12 am

        Actually, it is. It’s preventing me from getting a good Star Wars video game, which hurts my mood. Hopefully EA will take this as a lesson.

        • September 25, 2016 at 8:35 pm

          No, that’s false. It’s not a zero-sum game where they give you a bad game instead of a good one. They intend all games to be good. If you don’t like this one, there is another one coming that you might like.

          This game shutting down doesn’t change the games they are already making. It’s not like they said, “Oh, this was a bad game, let’s make a good game now!”

          • September 26, 2016 at 7:06 am

            Of course not. A few more games will have to flop for them to do that.

          • September 26, 2016 at 2:49 pm

            Again, not how it works.

          • September 26, 2016 at 10:20 pm

            A guy can dream.

  • September 25, 2016 at 12:31 am

    Good! The game sucks anyway.

      • September 25, 2016 at 7:34 am

        More mature than you getting mad over it.

        • September 25, 2016 at 8:32 pm

          I don’t recall being mad. Just made an observation.

  • September 25, 2016 at 6:54 am

    I never played this game, but I will say mmo’s as a whole have been struggling in recent years. Even WOW has bled off half it’s subscriber base.
    There is one critique though I have always wanted to give to premise of this game. With the Battle of Jakku only one year after Endor, you’re trying to run an MMO that can only have a 1 year ‘in game time’ plausability. Then it busts through canon like a fist through hot crisco. Unless there is something about the video game aspect to the unified cannon I am missing, or unless uprising had a particular workaround for this… I did not see any world time in the game footage on YT so maybe it doesn’t have any.

  • September 25, 2016 at 9:26 am

    I’m the only one who thinks it’s sort of a shame? I was curious to learn what happenned in the end during the story…

  • September 25, 2016 at 10:43 am

    Real answer to question #1: people stopped giving us money on our dumb, cheaper phone game passed off as quality STar Wars content.

  • September 25, 2016 at 2:18 pm

    Bearly heard of it so some on in the promotion side of things not doing there job

  • September 25, 2016 at 5:32 pm

    Saw this coming.
