Beyond Eyes was delisted on September 8th, 2021 just a few days prior, creator Sherida Halatoe tweeted that the publishing deal between tiger & squid and Team17 would not be renewed. Indicating an unpleasant situation in working with the publisher, Halatoe tweeted on September 2nd, 2021:
In other news, I have decided to not renew my publishing agreement for Beyond Eyes with Team17 which is about to expire, meaning the game won’t be available after. I wish I could say it was a pleasure working with them but it would be a lie 😅@SheridaEH
Team17’s support account on Twitter confirmed a day later that the Steam version would be removed from sale on September 8th but did not make any mention of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions. However, by midnight on September 8th these versions were also delisted. In further tweets, Halatoe mentioned that they were moving away from game development and that tiger & squid studio would also be shelving their follow-up title, Trails of Life.
