Clash of Clans, the renowned strategy war game from Supercell, has been surrounded by serious rumours that have left the fans in strain. As per some online reports, Clash of Clans is being removed from Android and iOS devices in 2022, and the game servers will be shut down forever soon.
After spending countless hours in the game, COC players are now worried about losing their years of progress and have flocked to the internet to uncover the mystery of Clash of Clans removal in 2022. Well, here’s the complete breakdown of the rumours claiming the shutting down of Clash of Clans.
Is Clash of Clans being removed in 2022?
The answer to the most debatable and controversial question, “Is Clash of Clans being removed in 2022?” is an absolute no. In simple words, Clash of Clans is not being removed from the Android and iOS store anytime soon. As a result, the shutting down of COC were just baseless rumours and spreading like wildfire without any shreds of evidence.
As per a report by HITC, the rumours initially surfaced on social media handles, specifically on TikTok, which claimed that COC servers were shutting down in 2022. In fact, this isn’t the first time when such insensible rumours have emerged on the web.
Back in 2016, Anoushka, the part of the Supercell development team, disproved the rumours of servers shutdown and said in an official statement:
However, the support for Clash of Clans is ending for iPhone and Android users running lower than iOS 11 and Android 5.0. This came to light when the Clash of Clans team announced on their official blog.
Due to technical reasons beyond Supercell’s control, the developers are unfortunately forced to end support for all Apple and Android devices running on OS versions lower than iOS 11 and Android 5.0, respectively. Therefore, update to iOS version 11 / Android 5.0 (or higher) as soon as possible to keep playing COC.
