The Testament of Sherlock Holmes was delisted from Xbox 360 in January of 2019 according to reporting from TrueAchievements.com. It was presumably delisted on PlayStation 3 around the same time. At some point in 2015 the publisher of the Steam version changed hands from Focus Home Interactive to Frogwares, also the game’s developer.
Despite this earlier delisting The Testament of Sherlock Holmes was included in Frogwares’ September 2019 announcement regarding their titles as published by Focus Home Interactive. Its inclusion could indicate that Focus Home had only recently made a formal break from the title and the developer, barring the console releases from returning to sale.
