Air Conflicts: Secret Wars was last confirmed available on Xbox 360 on May 4th, 2017 and was delisted some time between that date and December 11th, 2017. In August of 2015 the game’s Steam listing changed publishers from bitComposer to the developer, Games Farm. On consoles it was picked up by Kalypso who also updated the game for release on PlayStation 4. However, Kalypso did not seek to bring the game back as a downloadable title on Xbox 360 and only the physical version remains available on that platform.
In Fall 2014 bitComposer Entertainment AG filed for insolvency protection after missing several game releases which put their financial standing in jeopardy. The company was dissolved in January 2015 but relaunched shortly after as bitComposer Interactive GmbH with new management and investors. According to bitComposer’s homepage several “major assets” and “name rights” were lost over the course of these events resulting in several delistings. Many of these titles have reappeared with new publishers but not on all of the original release platforms. See the list of titles published by bitComposer for more details.
