Tetris has been one of the most popular digital games for decades, but it is now disappearing from people’s phones.
The gaming giant EA has said that it is ‘time to say goodbye’ to the popular game, and that it will formally retire on April 21, 2020.
Tetris was first created by a Soviet engineer in 1984 and is still popular as a cult favorite among some players, despite the strong competition of the console giants.
But the Tetris mantle has been picked up by another company, called N3twork, which has already launched an official game for Android and iOS.

In his latest app updates on several platforms, an emotional message accompanied the game EA Tetris.
He said: ‘Hello, fans, we have had an incredible trip with you so far, but unfortunately, it’s time to say goodbye.
‘As of April 21, 2020, EA’s Tetris application will be withdrawn and will no longer be available to play.
‘Please note that you can still enjoy the game and use and the existing elements in the game until April 21, 2020.
“We hope you enjoyed this game for many hours and we appreciate your continued support. Thank you! ‘
N3twork signed an agreement last year to ‘develop and publish exclusively new Tetris games created from scratch for mobile devices worldwide.’ N3twork is also working on a Tetris Royale game, but the latest version is the classic version for a player (pictured)
N3twork signed an agreement last year to ‘develop and publish exclusively new Tetris games created from scratch for mobile devices worldwide.’
It seems that the license change has seen EA withdraw from the Tetris arena permanently.
EA released Tetris for iOS for the first time in 2008 for $ 9.99, but the new version will be free, but it comes with ads. A one-time fee of $ 4.99 will eliminate them.
N3twork is also working on a Tetris Royale game, but the latest version is the classic version of a player that players are so familiar with.
“We are launching Tetris with a traditional solo game mode, but we want fans to know that we have much more reserved for them, and this is only the basis of an incredible Tetris application experience that we are building on N3twork,” said the CEO. Neil Young
