EA refutes claims that they have stopped selling physical games in Germany

No, EA has not stopped the physical distribution of games in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland

In a statement to PlayStation Lifestyle, EA has refuted claims that the company has stopped selling physical games in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, stating that articles reporting these claims are "inaccurate". 

Recent reports have claimed that EA are stopping the physical distribution of games in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland due to declining revenues from physical game sales. EA were reportedly moving to a digital-only release model within these regions as part of an "economic restructuring". 

Below is what EA had to say regarding reports of their cessation of physical game sales to German speaking regions.

We have not stopped physical distribution of our games in Germany, Austria, or Switzerland. Players will continue to be able to buy our games from retailers across the region. Recent reports stating otherwise are an inaccurate reflection of disclosures made in EA Germany’s statutory financial statements.

For now, EA appears to have no plans to stop selling physical games in German speaking regions, which is great news for gamers who enjoy owning physical copies of EA titles. While physical game sales are declining, there is still a place for physical games within today's market, and hopefully physical games will remain on store shelves for some time to come.
