One Rockstar game arrives on Steam, another leaves it. One month after the arrival of the highly-anticipated Red Dead Redemption 2 on the platform, the PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV has just been removed.
The game remains available in Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions, however.
Last bow for Niko Bellic
Contacted by Neowin, Rockstar, however, did not give a reason for this partial withdrawal. The site assumes that it could be due to music licensing issues. He explains that ” Rockstar has already been forced to replace the music for the game’s radio stations with an update. […] We do not know why here they have not been corrected as before, and why this situation only affects the PC version ».
It would not be, a priori, a question of seniority for this title released in 2008. If the full version of Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City released in 2010 was also removed from Steam, the stories remain available at the stand-alone format. The possibility of playing the game on the Valve platform does not change either for people who already have the game: it is always possible to relive the story of Niko Bellic.
