Humble Store removes EA titles

All EA and Origin keys purchased through the Humble Store will soon be invalid.

In a statement, Humble Bundle announced that Electronic Arts games are no longer available on the Humble Store. The retailer removed EA titles from purchase on March 4, 2022, and those with EA or Origin keys will need to redeem them by March 18, 5:00 p.m. PDT. After this time, the keys will become invalid.

The company said this only affects sales made through the Humble Store and does not apply to EA titles purchased as part of a bundle or through the company’s subscription service, Humble Choice. Emails have been sent to those affected.

Additionally, Humble will automatically attempt to retrieve all outstanding keys if your Humble and Origin accounts are linked. This will be attempted on March 17 at 3:00 PM PDT, but may not be possible in all cases.

Humble has urged anyone with unused keys to activate them by March 18, as no replacements or refunds will be offered after that date, even if automatic attempts to redeem the content have failed.

If you have any issues while redeeming the keys, we advise you to contact their customer support team before they become invalid.

In a post sharing the statement, Twitter user Wario64 added that EA Origin games have reportedly been removed from other PC stores, including Fanatical, Gamesplanet, and Green Man Gaming. It’s unclear why EA would take this approach, if the report is accurate.
