Blacklight: Tango Down was delisted from Xbox 360 in January of 2018 according to reporting from It was delisted at this time alongside other titles from Ignition Games and may have been removed in a broad sweep of their titles. The PlayStation 3 version was likely delisted around this time as well.

The game remains available on Steam for $0.99 but is apparently only playable online if the player has a functional install of the Games For Windows Live client. LAN play may also still be accessible. Zombie Studios closed in 2015 and Hardsuit Labs subsequently acquired the Blacklight property including Retribution which Zombie had also developed. Hardsuit continues to keep Retribution online as of this writing and is likely behind the continued presence of Tango Down on Steam.
