Aliens: Colonial Marines, Alien vs. Predator pulled from Steam

Gearbox Software’s Aliens: Colonial Marines and Rebellion’s Aliens vs. Predator have been delisted for purchase from Steam, possibly indicating the end of publisher SEGA’s license to digitally distribute the titles.

Those who previously bought the games can still access and play them through the Steam library as the games have only been pulled from the store. The digital PC version of Colonial Marines is available for purchase on Green Man Gaming and both titles are still listed on Amazon.

At this time, the two games are currently available to download on Xbox 360’s Xbox Store. 2013’s Aliens: Colonial Marines is listed as a digital download on the PlayStation Store for PlayStation 3, while 2010’s Aliens vs. Predator is listed as “disc only.” Creative Assembly’s recent Alien: Isolation is still available for puchase on Steam, along with Rebellion-published Aliens vs. Predator Classic 2000.

The recent delistings follow a spate of licensed video games being removed from various digital download services last year allegedly due to expiring licenses. Delisted titles include Marvel vs. Capcom Origins, Deadpool, Spider-Man and X-Men, Capcom’s Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
