Reminder – Service Update: Game Retirements

Java and Flash, two technologies that have powered Pogo games for many years, are being phased out across the internet. Support for Java has already been dropped from most web browsers, and Flash support will be discontinued by 2020. Pogo and EA have no control over this change in web technology.

Because of this, we are retiring the following older Flash-based games from Pogo on October 8th. (Please note the retirement date has been updated from October 31st). 

Loop the City
Sudoku X
Greater Than Sudoku
Nine Men’s Morris
Gem’s Warfare
Classic Mines
Bouncing Letters
Martha Solitaire
Beaker Creatures
Maze Solitaire
Math Lines
Gems 3
Poker Square
Alhambra Solitaire
Chain Reaction
Word Out
Pile of Balls
Daily Crossword
Cirque du Flea
Dominoes Single Player
Puck’s Peak
Payday Poker
Letters from Nowhere

We know some of you will be disappointed. Due to changes in supported technology, it is simply not feasible for us to continue supporting these games. We know it’s no fun to lose a favorite game, so we encourage you to explore the Pogo library. We have multiple games in each category – bingo, card, word, puzzle, etc. – offering similar gameplay.

Keep an eye on Badge Central – we’ll be bringing back as many Badges as we can for these games, discounted by 50%. We encourage you to work on finishing up any Challenges or ranks while you can. You will be automatically awarded Badges for any in-progress or purchased Challenges you are unable to complete in time.

We’re continuing to update our most popular games to HTML5, providing improved graphics, performance and accessibility across devices and browsers. We’ve already released over two dozen new and updated titles, with more in the works. The future of games on Pogo is very bright!

Thank you for all your support and understanding,

-Your friends at Pogo
