Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter and Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 were delisted from Steam no later than May 30th, 2015. They were likely delisted from the Ubisoft Store around this time as well. Although the games were affected by the termination of the GameSpy multiplayer services in May of 2014, they remained on sale for the following year.
It has been suggested that the games were ultimately removed from sale due to expired licensing of the Diesel engine that was used exclusively for the PC versions of each game. Diesel was created by GRIN who developed the PC versions of GRAW and GRAW2 but sold the rights during their bankruptcy which were reportedly acquired by Overkill. The console versions were developed using different engines and as of this writing are still available to buy.
While the games may still be available on physical media and as downloads for consoles, the multiplayer in all versions has been altered from its original form. After the GameSpy shutdown Ubisoft Support began referring PC players to third-party solutions to continue playing online. On consoles, the games first lost some of their online functionality in 2014. According to Ubisoft Support, online play was scheduled to be terminated entirely in 2016 but based on forum threads from 2018, matchmaking was apparently still functional.
About the Game
“It’s 2014, and the soldiers of the future return to encounter a new threat along the recently completed wall on the U.S./Mexico border. The Ghosts are more powerful with an upgraded Integrated Warfighter System but have only 72 hours to assess the threat and stop the rebels. With a border that’s 1,900 miles long and an enemy that doesn’t play by the rules, this is a job for the U.S. military’s most elite fighting unit, a job for the Ghosts.“
