If you are a big 007 and wanted to buy the digital versions of recent James Bond games published by Activision, you may be out of luck: all the games have been pulled from Steam without explanation, as of now.
The pulled games are 007: Blood Stone, developed by Bizarre Creations, 007: Quantum Of Solace developed by Treyarch, developers of the Call Of Duty: Black Ops series and the recently released 007: Legends, developed by Eurocom.
The mystery deepens if you do a search on Activison official web store: the games are nowhere to be found. The publisher still hasn’t commented on the issue, but it’s highly unlikely that the games were pulled only due to the bad performance of the 007 Legends game, which has got some avarage scores and sales and brought the demise of the development studio based in Derby. This is probably due to some license issues together with the latest game’s failure: Activision first got the 007 rights in 2006 after EA had decided they weren’t going to use them anymore and was supposed to have them until 2014.
Maybe the really poor performance of 007: Legends made Activision rethink their strategy? We’ll keep you updated when something new is available, Activision still has to comment about all this.
