This is a super annoying trend that I have already written about multiple times, but earlier this month Electronic Arts removed F1 22 from stores and made it exclusive to EA Play under a $5 per month membership. The 2022 edition of the Formula One franchise joins every other title except F1 23 in a land of limbo, unpreserved, and largely unplayable by players wanting to explore the history of the franchise or the sport.

De-list dates (bold during EA ownership):
F1 2010 – September 21, 2017
F1 2011 – May 5, 2021
F1 2012 – March 11, 2022

F1 2013 – December 31, 2016
F1 2014 – March 11, 2022
F1 2015 – March 11, 2022
F1 2016 – March 11, 2022
F1 2017 – March 11, 2022
F1 2018 – March 11, 2022
F1 2019 – April 18, 2022
F1 2020 – March 15, 2023
F1 2021 – May 3, 2023
F1 22 – March 4, 2024

If you do not consider the lifespan of an EA SPORTS F1 title when purchasing, as I keep saying in my reviews, perhaps you should. F1 22 initially released June 28, 2022 and that is just 20 months and one week before they de-listed it. You’re paying for a premium AAA product and are guaranteed less than two years of new players and populated servers.

I'm afraid this is a new trend from EA: from the day of announcement of a new F1 game the previous installment is no longer discounted during sales and it's delisted next year, when another title is revealed. And I hate it too.
