Some of Activision's licensed games are no longer available to be purchased on computer stores as of this current week, including "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" series.

"Mutants in Manhattan" was released on May 24, 2016, for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. As of this current week, the game is not available to be purchased on the PlayStation Store, Steam or Xbox Games Store. It is not accessible digitally in the vicinity of the Humble Store or Amazon, however, physical duplicates or copies of Mutants in Manhattan are still accessible for buy from the latest retailer, as per GameSpot.

While authorized games have vanished from computer stores various circumstances in the past- - including some of Activision's "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", the one comes as a shock. The Amazing Spider-Man games were released in 2012 and 2014, individually, while the Platinum Games-developed "Mutants in Manhattan" appeared not exactly a year earlier, in May 2016. Games are normally delisted because of the expiration of the licensing agreement, however, that is a brief time for it to have been accessible.

Activision has not made any formal declarations with respect to the game's removal. It's not clear why "Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan" was briefly delisted carefully, however as a rule terminated licensing arrangements are to be faulted. Digital forms of "The Amazing Spider-Man" as expelled and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2", both Activision-distributed titles expelled from stores. A comparable circumstance happened with Activision's well received "Deadpool", which was delisted from digital retailers in 2014, just to give back the next year, as per Polygon.

Formerly bought versions of these games will stay playable, and physical duplicates or copies stay available for use. Unless something changes with digital accessibility, the last will be your only method for getting your hands on any of these games later on.
