If you are looking to grab a digital copy of Bioshock 2, you will have to look somewhere other than Steam, XBLA and PSN. Why? Because the game is no longer available on these platforms.
Late last week, the game was taken down along with its digital content. The game is almost five years old and rumors suggest that this removal could be due to an expired licensing deal.
Bioshock 2 seems to be the only affected party as other Bioshock games are still available at various platforms. Thankfully, 2K stated that the removal is only temporary and the game will be back in the near future.
BioShock 2 has been temporarily removed from the Steam, Xbox Live, and PlayStation Network marketplaces and will return to these digital stores soon. We’ll let you know when that happens. In the meantime, this in no way affects the single-player or multiplayer experience for those who currently own BioShock 2.
Looks like those who already own the game won’t have any issue playing online or offline modes. It was released back in 2010 for Sony’s PlayStation 3, Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Windows PC. However, the game along with its downloadable content came to Steam only a couple of years ago.
2K is yet to reveal the exact reason behind the disappearance of the game but we have reached out to the company for an explanation. We let you know as soon as something is shared with us.
