Another game is fading into the shadows to a cottage on memory lane and this time it’s a Warhammer license. Earlier this year, the studio announced that Warhammer Quest will be delisted from Steam soon.
“New sales of Warhammer Quest will end shortly on Steam,” the news post read at the time. “Thanks for all your support for this game over the years.”
Steam will delist Warhammer Quest next month, but you can still get it on GOG. The Warhammer title was announced for removal from the Valve storefront in October. The Game was launched in 2015 and became one of the best-played games in the Warhammer franchise.
According to Chilled Mouse publisher Ian Baverstock, the game will be delisted on Steam on December 12 but will continue in sales on GOG. Despite speculation, it’s possible that the licensing terms on the two storefronts differ. At this point, it’s unclear if the GOG version will also be removed down the road, but we’ll keep you informed.
Based on the classic tabletop board game from 1995, Warhammer Quest features top-down adventure, RPG, and strategy elements. It granted players the freedom to hunt, build homes and other structures, and run their own economy.
Many games have left the shelves this year as a sluggish economy forced multiple layoffs and reduced purchasing powers. this has influenced reduced sponsoring and has turned investors away from taking risks. Nonetheless, some games have entered the graveyard due to poor management or inefficient use of resources.
As two wars rage and oil price soars, many players are opting for free games and are leaving publishers only with in-game revenue options. many more may have to go.
Currently, the game is $10.99 (about $14) on Steam with a ‘Mostly Positive’ Review tag, so if you are a Warhammer fan, you have just under a month to get it.
