Two licensed games from PlatinumGames, Transformers Devastation and The Legend of Korra, have been delisted from Steam and the PlayStation Store and are no longer available for purchase.

That’s bad (but not unsurprising) news for PlatinumGames fans who might’ve missed out on the better-than-expected action brawler Transformers Devastation and the so-so Legend of Korra. But ‘tis the season of Activision-published licensed games disappearing unceremoniously from digital stores.

Transformers Devastation is still listed for sale on Xbox.com (and marked down to $10 for Xbox Live Gold subscribers, no less) for Xbox One and at GameStop and the Humble Store for Windows PC. GameStop and Amazon also list physical versions of the game.

GameStop is also still selling digital versions of The Legend of Korra for console and PC. Xbox.com also has the Xbox One version digitally (also on deep discount: $3.75 for Xbox Live Gold subscribers), and Humble still lists the PC version for sale.

It’s not uncommon for licensed video games to vanish from digital stores near the end of the year. Another Platinum action game, the terrible Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan, was similarly pulled from online stores around the start of 2017.
