Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse was delisted from Steam on December 19th 2014. The last Archive.org capture shows it available on Xbox 360 on December 8th, 2014 and delisted by January 5th, 2015. The downloadable PlayStation 3 version was also likely delisted around this time.
Activision’s license to both Family Guy and Ice Age through Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products was announced in the Spring of 2012. Just two years later both products were delisted from digital storefronts very near to one another; Family Guy in December of 2014 and Ice Age in January of 2015.
Activision may have chosen to delist the games as they both received below average Metacritic scores. It’s also possible a three-year licensing deal was secured as early as 2011 and after delays the games were rushed to a late release in 2012 leading to what looks like the premature delisting.
