Blasters of the Universe was delisted on the Oculus store no later than February 18th, 2023. We noticed its absence in reporting on the news from February 15th where developer Secret Location announced that the studio would be shutting down. It is possible that Blasters of the Universe was delisted earlier although it is not expected to have happened before January of 2023.

The parent company mentioned in the studio’s announcement is Entertainment One (eOne), a long-standing media and entertainment company that was acquired by Hasbro in December of 2019. In 2023 Hasbro was looking to sell off eOne and many of its media properties that include Peppa Pig and PJ Masks. As part of this restructuring for sale they apparently decided to shut down Secret Location which eOne acquired in 2016 and was their only in-road into gaming.

By April 12th, 2023, Secret Location announced that all their published Steam titles would “no longer be available to purchase after May 2023.” Blasters of the Universe, The Great C, and Transpose would be delisted on May 31st. Below is a list of associated titles:

As of June 30th, 2023, Blasters of the Universe was delisted worldwide on PlayStation 4.
