Aliens: Colonial Marines and AvP 2010 No Longer Sold on Steam

The Aliens vs. Predator Steam forum offers a confused post which notes the game associated with the forum is no longer being sold on Steam, though it remains playable for those who have already purchased it. There is an extensive discussion of this and the concerns it raises on reddit. There's also a related post on Polygon noting that a Aliens: Colonial Marines is similarly no longer for sale on Steam, with this forum post raising questions about what's going on which have so far gone unanswered. They also note that for those still interested, Steam codes for Aliens: Colonial Marines can still be found on Amazon along with the Aliens: Colonial Marines Season Pass.

I a have feeling it was a case of the game not selling at all on the service.
Where is the harm in keeping it available on Steam?

I a have feeling it was a case of the game not selling at all on the service. Everywhere I have seen ACM still sold its under $5 in some bargin bin. Also It might have to do with controlling the reputation of the Alien brand. A new Alien game came out not to long ago and some people might be put off my the user reviews of the other games.

Every year something likes this happens with some game. Wouldn't surprise me to see both games back on Steam fairly shortly.

I never understood all the hate for AvP 2010. I had a lot of fun with the campaigns and it's still is one of the prettiest games out there.

I remember reviewing it when it came out, having been somewhat familiar with the original but not really a huge fan of the franchise or anything. Solid game, not amazing, and just a bit short. But that wasn't enough for a lot of people who held some really high expectations, and so then when the multiplayer never took off on top of that, it fell to the wayside pretty quickly.

Hopefully Sega realizes why Isolation was so well received, and continues that route...

Same new year licensing bullshit probably. Not those games are any good.

Is this due to a licensing issue, as the Deadpool game did last year (after being on sale for maybe 2 months)?

Let me get right on that ACM Season pass before it's too late!

But really, Sega and GB have pretty much dumped all ties to ACM that James Cameron couldn't even find their support at the bottom of the Challenger Deep so I wouldn't expect a lengthy explanation as to why this happened, if any at all.

Which is a shame because AvP remake looks like a triple A title when compared to ACM and generally was an 'okay', albeit unmemorable game when compared to its predecessors.
