Steam pulled Gearbox Software’s Aliens: Colonial Marines and Rebellion’s Aliens vs. Predator from their store page yesterday without any warning, possibly suggesting that this is the end of publisher SEGA’s license to digitally distribute the two titles.

If you already have the two games in your steam library however, you will still be able to access and play them as you always have in the past, they’re just no longer being sold in the store.

If you haven’t picked up the game yet though and still hone to, both titles are still listed on Green Man Gaming and Amazon, as well as on the PlayStation and Xbox store. Other titles that were delisted in 2014 following expired licenses were Marvel vs. Capcom Origins, Deadpool, Spider-Man and X-Men, Capcom’s Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

 

  • Wow damn sure am lucky I finally bought ACM a month ago for $4. I can think of why they pulled it. Game keeps opening when you close it. The multiplayer is so scattered, you can find people on the forum making play dates, scheduling them. It would have been much better to have a list of servers, but whatever. Gearbox be Gearbox I guess. I own the other one too. Bought it for $2. Bought the other AvP 2000 for $2 as well.

      Haha you are! Im jealous, I wish I had picked it up during one of the many holiday sales. The price you got it for sounds like a steal. That’s a shame about the multiplayer though.

      • When it first came out I rented it from Redbox for $6. It was worth it. Like its not awful, but its flawed. I’ve played A New Reckoning, which is awful. The ending really left me with a sour taste in the end though. The multiplayer can be improved to have browsers or ‘find any game online’ but well I guess why improve it when no one plays it? Even the bug fixes that they did 2 years ago or whatever are still in the game. idk Gearbox. Everyone loves Borderlands, but hates everything else.
