F1 2012 was initially delisted on Xbox 360 between December of 2015 and January of 2016 based on Archive.org captures.
Electronic Arts delisted seven F1 titles on Steam on March 11th, 2022. The same titles were likely delisted on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One around the same time. The titles range from F1 2012 up through 2019 (with F1 2013 having already been delisted) as well as F1 Race Stars.
These delistings were one of the first notable moves by Electronic Arts after acquiring Codemasters in 2021. Either Electronic Arts chose not to renew the FIA license for these titles after they expired or were unable to negotiate a renewal and subsequently removed them from sale.
At that time F1 2019 (Steam only), 2020, and 2021 remained as the most recent releases with two older portable titles — F1 2009 for PSP and F1 2011 for Vita — still hanging on in North American and European territories. These 2022 delistings join F1 2010, 2011, and 2013 that were delisted years prior by Codemasters.
