PlayStation Blog announcement
According to Wikipedia, Catan on the PlayStation 3 was delisted as early as 2012, marking four years from the earliest digital release but only two years after the North American and European releases. The four-year timing may relate to the length of Game Republic’s license of the ‘Settlers of Catan’ property, created by Klaus Teuber and owned by Catan GmbH.
Since 2013 United Soft Media has maintained several Catan releases across Steam, the web, Android, iOS, and Nintendo Switch. In 2021 Catan GmbH also announced upcoming console releases for PlayStation and Xbox platforms created alongside Dovetail Games.
