Choplifter HD was delisted on Steam on February 20th, 2019. The cause for the delisting — denoted on the store page with the familiar “at the request of the publisher” notice —  is uncertain as inXile has been the developer and publisher of the Steam version since its release. The game remains available on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It is possible that the delisting is related to the game’s age and potential poor performance on newer operating systems although this is unsubstantiated.
