Actually, all the Activision Marvel games are vanishing now
As we reported yesterday, Deadpool was taken down of all digital stores for console and PC – XBL, Steam, and PSN. Now it seems more has happened over the course of 24 hours.
Spider-Man: Edge of Time, Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, Spider-Man: Friend or Foe, Spider-Man: Web of Shadows, X-Men: Origins – Wolverine, X-Men: Destiny, X-Men: The Official Game have all now vanished too.
As we theorized yesterday, contracts running out are to blame. Dan Amrich, Activision’s Community Manager, did not have much to say on Twitter when asked, but did comment “Contracts have dates. Whatchagonnado.”
Game Informer have also received confirmation from Activision that contracts running out are why the games were delisted. They even go as far to tell readers to secure a retail copy as soon as possible if they want one, as it would be very likely that no additional copies will be provided to retail either.
