Electronic Arts has announced that its Origin game store will no longer sell physical copies of games from April 4.

“Starting April 4th Origin will be going all digital. This means the entire Origin game store will be entirely digital downloads for PC and Mac,” the publisher wrote. “What does this mean for you? If you’re among 99% of our users, absolutely nothing. Your shopping experience hasn’t changed one single bit.

“But if you’re that 1% who still desires a physical collection, we want to let you know that Origin won’t be able to fulfill that need beginning April 4th. We’ll still be here when you transition your gaming habits to the wonders of digital downloads.

“Digital is fast and convenient. Origin’s focus is to give gamers the best experience, and going all-digital will make that possible.”

This doesn’t mean that EA is going to stop selling physical copies completely. You will still be able to pick up boxed copies of games from other retailers.
