Aliens: Colonial Marines and Alien vs Predator have been pulled from the Steam store [update]

We know that Aliens: Colonial Marines and Alien vs. Predator (2010) could have been better games, but did they really have to get pulled from the Steam store? One might say that it has to do with the Alien license, but that isn’t true since SEGA just released Alien: Isolation, which is still on the Steam store.

The even odder thing is that the older Alien vs Predator (published by Rebellion) is also still on Steam, making me think this could have been done by SEGA to weed out the ‘shitty’ Alien games. Though Aliens: Colonial Marines is still available to buy on Amazon, GMG, and other digital PC stores (all even redeem on steam and probably have limited codes).

Alien vs Predator and Alien: colonial Marines join a list of SEGA titles to be pulled from digital services. Others include the recent Afterburner Climax, Outrun 2: Coast to Coast, Sega Rally Revo, and more.  Read more about pulled games in the Steam forum topic.

Edit: Alien: Colonial Marines and Alien vs Predator have now reappeared on the Steam store.

  1. Back in 2010, SEGA delisted a lot of Sonic titles that got average or below scores on Metacritic to increase the brand value following positive reception on Sonic 4 and Sonic Colors. Maybe they are doing the same with Aliens.

    Alien is probably a different license to Aliens and Alien vs Predator?

  3. Some guy says:

    Colonial Marines has been relisted on Steam recently.
