It’s less than a year old, but Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan, the co-op action title from Platinum Games, has been removed from sale on Steam.
A lot of our list of the best old games are still available on Steam.
Turtles wasn’t kicked down a Manhattan sewer grate on its own – its 2013 predecessor Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 also disappeared.
This kind of thing usually happens when licenses expire, but it’s very strange if this is the case for a game that’s less than a year old. All of the games are published by Activision, so we reached out for comment to try find out why Platinum’s Turtles had been removed from sale so soon.
However, we were told “we won’t be making a comment” by an Activision representative.
If you already own the delisted games, you can still play them, but unfortunately PC didn’t get a physical release of any of these titles, meaning they’re gone forever for any potential new buyers, and there wasn’t even a warning.
