|Delisting:||June 17, 2020 - GOG.com|
GOG.com announced on June 15th, 2020 that Grandia II Aniiversary Edition would be leaving the service on June 17th. The same updated version was also released on Steam in August of 2015 but was renamed Grandia II HD Remaster in 2019 to coincide with the re-release of the original Grandia. As of this writing both games remain available individually on Steam and in a bundle on the Nintendo Switch.
Grandia II was the only release still on GOG.com from both developer Game Arts and publisher GungHo Online. This suggests that one or both of the companies were wrapping up their efforts on the platform, however no public statement had been made at the time.
