Rebellion’s Aliens vs. Predator and Gearbox Software’s Aliens: Colonial Marines have been pulled from Steam on January 1st, 2015. Both titles are no longer purchasable from Valve’s digital platform but they still can be activated and accessed via your Steam Library.

While no official explanation has been given as to why both games aren’t available through Steam any more, this could potentially indicate the end of SEGA’s license to digitally distribute these two titles.

Other licensed games, including several of Activision’s Marvel titles as well as Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse and Ice Age 4 were delisted from Steam in time for the new year.

I never got the chance to download AVP '010 on Steam :(. I only had the game on the 360 from 2010 - 2013.

Son of a bitch. They didn't give us a single forewarning on this, either. I'm guessing the license is changing hands.

This kind of crap ticks me off, and almost all digital distributors do it. At least let us know a game and/or it's DLC is going to be removed so those of us that want it or have been on the fence about it can actually get it before it's too late. Hell, they'd make more money if they'd advertise something like, "Act now! Item being removed on xxxx!".

Shit. My sis was planning on purchasing AVP'10 on Steam as soon as her gaming rig was ready. I was really looking forward to playing it with her, too. :(

Correct me if I'm wrong, but all physical copies of the game will still have valid Steam activation codes...

Good, as far as I'm considered.

That's what I'm hoping. The trick is tracking one down.

However, if the Steam activation codes don't work anymore, then there's a serious problem.

Looks like they've been removed from the X-Box and PlayStation and other Digital distribution sites.

It sucks that you can't buy the DLCs even if you already own the game.

Well for those of you who did pick it up with the holiday sales we have a group of people even with a dedicated server from time to time that play the DLC and the normal maps if you'd like to group on Steam we can make one and set up dates. If interested please message me.

Also who has the licensing then?
