    Always sad to see a game getting delisted. But props to the devs to notify us about half a year in advance. Usually these delistings are instant without notification and then its too late for people who want to buy it. Now the game is at a good discount, 80%. If I had interest into the game and there was no FH5 on Steam, then I’d buy it.

    Licensing issues with music can easily be patched out and replaced by other music. But what can they do about the cars? I guess a lifetime license for the games is too expensive, so it will be a limited license and then the delisting is only matter of time. Man this sucks.

      it’s the car manufacturers that piss me off on this. Why is the license timed? Why isn’t it licensed on a “per game release” basis? What does Toyota lose if the 94 Celica is still driveable in a dead racing game from 10 years ago? It’s clearly a case of game devs having to acquiesce to the demands of stakeholders that don’t understand video games.
