Electronic Arts games for PC are being withdrawn from some stores

Humble Store has announced that the codes for games from Electronic Arts and other manufacturers intended for the Origin platform will have to be used by the 18th of this month at the latest. After that date, the codes will become invalid.

According to Wario64 tweeters, Electronic Arts withdrew its games from other official keys/code resellers, such as GreenManGaming, Fanatical, etc., earlier this week.

It is unknown at this time why Electronic Arts are withdrawing activation codes for its games, and the company has not commented on this. There are theories that this is due to the imminent retirement of Origin - at least under that name. Namely, Electronic Arts have already announced that in the future we will no longer have Origin but a new platform called EA (desktop app).

Another possibility is that EA could switch to a "silent code activation" system, so it no longer sends codes to resellers but asks customers to link the store's accounts and the EA application to activate the code purchased from the reseller.
