Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mutants in Manhattan has been delisted from Steam, PlayStation Store, and Xbox Store. The game was developed by action game specialist Platinum and published by Activision.
No statement has been released by Activision as to why the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mutants in Manhattan was delisted from the stores and comes as a surprise since the game was released 8 months ago.
It seems that Activision is witnessing a licensed games purge as previously The Amazing Spider-Man and its sequel have also been taken down from the sale. Maybe the license for the IP expired and the company did not bother to renew it again.
Given that the game was not a huge success both critically and financially it makes sense that Activision decided not to renew the license for the game.
However, only the digital versions of the game have been taken down as the physical copies will still be available.
As far as the Platinum Games is concerned the studio has not released any statement over the delisting of the game from all digital stores. Platinum Games is currently developing NieR Automata which is expected to launch sometime in 2017.
NieR Automata is currently scheduled to launch for PlayStation 4 and PC but the studio has clarified that they have not ruled out the possibility of the game to release for Xbox One.
According to producer Yosuke Saito, Platinum Games is considering to release NieR Automata to Xbox One. However, he added that the decision will be based upon the success of the game for PS4 and PC.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mutants in Manhattan is an action hack and slash video game developed by Platinum Games for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation4, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
