    This is a really daft question but I can't seem to find an answer on the Googles so apologies in advance...

    I currently have EA Access but these days I only play a handful of games so I've set it to cancel at renewal. The only EA game I still play is Titanfall 2 which I've just bought a physical copy of for a few quid.

    When the EA Access sub expires I'm obviously a bit twitchy about my save game vanishing into the ether so what is it that I actually need to do? Just leave the installed game on there and whack the disk in or do I need to uninstall the EA Access version of the game but somehow keep my save file?

    If the save files are local (likely) then you can use something like Game Save Manger to whip a copy of them elsewhere.

    I have no idea what Origin is like these days (haven't used it since BF3) and what it does with cloud saves though, sorry

    Save game will work the same if you use the disk or ea access download, they are saved locally and on the cloud.
