Activision's James Bond titles have mysteriously disappeared from Steam, as well as the publisher's own Download Store. The number of games missing totals three, including the fairly recent 007 Legends from Eurocom, and no explanations or warnings were given beforehand.
The two other games no longer available for download are Treyarch's Quantum of Solace from 2008 and Bizarre Creations' James Bond 007: Blood Stone from 2010. The latter studio, also known for developing Activision's racing title Blur, no longer exists.
Steam users were the first to notice the missing James Bond games, and it didn't take long before someone was pointing out that these same three games were also removed from Activision's online store. Cue countless snarky comments about how terrible the games were to begin with, and Valve and Activision doing everyone a favor by removing them.
It's a distinct possibility that Activision's license to publish/develop James Bond games has expired, though we're reaching out to the company for comment.
Prior to Acti, EA held the rights over Bond video games. The most recent installment to the franchise, 007 Legends, received poor reviews and sales, leaving developer Eurocom in a rather bad situation.
