A number of games licensed from Activision are no longer for sale on digital storefronts as of this week, including those from the Spider-Man and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series.
Reports have recently started to flow that The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 have both disappeared from Steam, PlayStation Store, Xbox Store, and eShop. During this time, it was also discovered that Activision Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan’s game has also disappeared from the digital platforms it was available on.
Activision has not made any formal announcement regarding the removal of the games. GameSpot has followed up with the company and will report back with any response we receive.
While licensed games have disappeared from digital stores a number of times in the past, including some from Activision, TMNT’s one comes as a surprise. The Amazing Spider-Man games were released in 2012 and 2014 respectively, while the Mutants developed by Platinum Games in Manhattan debuted less than a year ago, in May 2016. The games are generally delisted in because of the expiration of the license agreements, but it’s terribly short. as long as it is available.
Previously purchased versions of these games will remain playable and physical copies will remain in circulation. Unless something changes with digital availability, digital availability will be your only way to get your hands on any of these games in the future.
