R.U.S.E is off steam, website deleted.

Postby Avalanche » Thu 10 Dec 2015 16:52

Heyo,

Today RUSE was taken off the steam store, not just it's buy option (like bf2) but the entire steam page was deleted. http://steamcommunity.com/app/21970/discussions/ Same thing with it's website: http://ruse.uk.ubi.com/ . RUSE has had a stable player count, considering support for it was dropped soon after release, with lots of new players joining in over time http://steamcharts.com/app/21970#1y . Atm there is even a thread on AoA subforum about RUSE having more online players than AoA.

So, uhmmm, why do you guys think Ubi would do this? Even if servers are gonna be killed that would be no reason to erase it from history. Does Eugen know anything about this? The leading theory on ruse forums is that someone bought the rights to the game, do I dare hoping it was ES/FHI ? :o

Edit/Update:

“Due to the expiration of licensing rights over certain military items within the game, R.U.S.E is no longer available for purchase," Ubisoft tells us. "This does not, in anyway, affect players who already have the game in their library.”

Well, that's not our doing. As explained many times before, we have no rights on R.U.S.E, we've just developped it for Ubisoft.

I'll investigate the matter, see if I can find something.
Yet, I checked, and the game still launch as usual.

Yeah game runs fine but it is not avaible on steam store anymore. Thanks for looking into it, we were just having a tiny tiny tiny tiny bit of hope someone *cough* you *cough* had bought the rights to it in order to make a sequel

Unfortunately, we have no clue either of what is happening. :(

Indeed, if that were the case, I would surely not be allowed to. Therefore, believe what you want ... ;)

But as far as we are concerned, I couldn't get any reason for what happened. My boss even learned about it from me.
And unfortunately, all the people I knew at Ubisoft back then are gone. The Ubi producer working with us for RUSE was Mathieu Girard, whom since then has created his own studio (Amplitude, creator of the Endless series).
