Games don’t often disappear from Steam without good reason… or the fiery hatred of thousands of angry gamers. Yet People Can Fly’s Bulletstorm has ducked off the store with no fanfare, leaving us to wonder what might have prompted its disappearance. Or not.
Bulletstorm is one of a number of games that make use of the soon to be closed Games for Windows Live service, which has spent most of its lifetime despised by the gaming community.
As SlashGear’s Chris Burns highlights, both BioShock 2 and Fallout 3 have replaced GfWL with Steamworks, so it’s safe to assume the same thing is happening with People Can Fly’s shooter. Unfortunately, no timeline has been provided by Steam or the developer, so it’s anyone’s guess as to when it’ll return.
For the curious, a cached version of the Steam page can still be viewed via Google.
