Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime was delisted from Steam on February 6th, 2017 in the US, Europe, Australia, and Japan. It remains available to download on PC from both Atari and Amazon as well as PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 as of July 2017.
Similar to Ghostbusters: The Video Game, the developer of Sanctum of Slime is also defunct but the cause for the Steam delisting is most likely due to the Ghostbusters license. The game was available for nearly six years and was likely renewed at least once in that time. With Atari continuing to change directions from console games to PC early access to mobile and now to hardware and licensed goods, it’s probable that they chose not to renew again. The remaining digital editions (including the Steam page for the game’s DLC) will presumably be delisted as well before the end of 2017.
