Aliens vs Predator 2010 Pulled from Steam Without Any Announcement

By   /   Dec 31, 2014

Steam has pulled Aliens vs Predator from its library today, an action which many are supposing is due to a licensing issue.

There’s currently an ongoing discussion over the matter on the Steam forums. You can go through that while we’re waiting for an official statement.

Developed by Rebellion and published by Sega, Aliens vs Predator was released in February 2010 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. The game featured both a single-player campaign and a multiplayer component, the latter of which supposedly died out soon with the passing of the first couple of years.

The game gave players the freedom to play as either Predators, Aliens or the Colonial Marines. Each came with their own set of tools, as well as own set of perspective. The Aliens in particular could scale walls and had high mobility. Predators looked more technical in their hunting attire and were able to cloak themselves. The Colonial Marines looks the same as that of any standard first-person shooter.

Upon release, Aliens vs Predator was received with mixed reviews. One half praised Rebellion’s efforts while the other half expressed disappointment.

It however, debuted at number one on the UK all formats chart and was the fastest selling game of 2010 in the region. In May 2010, Aliens vs. Predator had sold over 1.69 million copies worldwide.
