Delisting

RISK: Factions was delisted from Xbox Live Arcade no later than June 26th, 2016 according to this report from TrueAchievements.com. It was presumably delisted on PlayStation 3 around the same time. Electronic Arts held the Hasbro license from 2007 to 2014 and released several games based on their board games on numerous platforms. Ubisoft announced in August of 2014 that it was the new license holder for Hasbro properties resulting in the delisting of this and most other EA published titles.

RISK: Factions remains available on Steam.
