Online video game rental service Gamefly will be shutting down its streaming subscription service at the end of August. Its physical services for game discs sent through the mail will remain unaffected. Variety reports that the final day of the service will be August 31, after which time accounts will no longer be charged and streaming games will no longer be available.
EA purchased Gamefly's cloud technology back in May, acquiring the company's Casesarea, Israel team and the technology behind the streaming service. Shortly after at E3 2018, EA announced its own streaming subscription service, Origin Access Premier, which went live earlier this week.
However, EA says that its acquisition was unrelated to the end of Gamefly streaming services. "We acquired the team in Israel and the technology they've developed, we did not acquire the Gamefly streaming service," said a spokesperson. "We have not been involved in any decisions around the service."
