Pandemic Eradicated from Steam

A post on Reddit reveals that Pandemic: The Board Game has been delisted on Steam, and is no longer available for purchase. This strategy game was released in 2018, so it was certainly not an effort to exploit COVID-19 at the time. It does seems possible the removal is still related to the coronavirus outbreak, but the notice on the Steam Listing is inscrutable: "At the request of the publisher, Pandemic: The Board Game is no longer available for sale on Steam." Those who already own it should still be able to play the game going forward. PC Gamer includes word on the one way to still get this:
Though no official announcement has been made, one player contacted Asmodee support and was told via email that, "We have worked hard over 4 years on Pandemic and withdrawing it from the stores has not been an easy choice. This decision was made with a heavy heart for a multitude of reasons that we cannot disclose." The email also claimed that Pandemic would be leaving the Xbox store on January 31, and Switch by the end of July.

Pandemic is no longer mentioned anywhere on Asmodee Digital's website. A look at the Wayback Machine shows that its page was removed in November or December of 2021. However, one digital version of Pandemic remains—on browser-based tabletop gaming platform Board Game Arena, which Asmodee bought last year. You can play Pandemic there for free right now, and with online multiplayer, something the Steam version didn't have.

Now, let's eradicate it (the pandemic, not Steam) from Earth and we should be fine. Or maybe not fine but at least a bit better.

Not possible. If anything we got lucky with COVID.

Highly suggest everyone listens to How To Survive a Pandemic by Micheal Greger. It is an eye opening compilation of public statements made by WHO and CDC officials.

They're predicting billions of deaths, before a vaccine is created.

Between factory farming, wet markets and exotic meat, it's "a question of when, not if"

I'm honestly surprised that we are all still here after listening to it lol - scary AF

Mass culling from time to time are not only good, they're necessary. The Black Death, for example, is what allowed us to move out of serfdom and create an upwardly mobile society, mass education, etc. As the old saying goes, in every cloud there's a silver lining. There's just way too many people on this rock and it's getting worse by the minute.

Are you volunteering then? Lol

That's the problem with infectious diseases, it's a little bit too random and it could.be me or you that gets "culled"

And there's no off switch. You'd want to have a back up copy of the human species on a space station like in Moonraker or on Mars like Musk suggests.
