Blacklight: Tango Down was delisted from Xbox 360 in January of 2018 according to reporting from TrueAchievements.com. It was delisted at this time alongside other titles from Ignition Games and may have been removed in a broad sweep of their catalog. The PlayStation 3 version was likely delisted around this time as well.
The game remained available on Steam for $0.99 but was apparently only playable online if the owner had a functional install of the Games For Windows Live client. LAN play may also still be accessible. Blacklight: Tango Down was eventually delisted on Steam on July 28th, 2020 alongside Magical Drop V, both titles from defunct publisher Ignition Entertainment. Zombie Studios, the game’s original developer, closed in 2015 and Hardsuit Labs subsequently acquired the Blacklight property including Retribution which Zombie had also developed. Hardsuit continued to keep Retribution online until March of 2019.
