As N3twork fills the void with a new one.
That’s a real shame for those who spent money on EA’s games, and it all seems linked to another company – N3twork – which today released a new officially-licensed Tetris game of its own. It’s called, well, Tetris – and is available for free on both iOS and Android. It looks like a very traditional version with some nice backgrounds… and ads, unfortunately, unless you’re willing to stump up £4.99.
While EA hasn’t given an official reason for pulling the games, in light of the reshuffle it’s almost certainly due to a licensing change. Last year N3twork made a deal with The Tetris Company to “exclusively develop and publish new Tetris games built from the ground up for mobile devices worldwide”. This includes the upcoming game Tetris Royale, which sounds very similar to Tetris 99 on Switch. Maybe this publisher will be a better fit.
