Several Magic: The Gathering titles (Duels of the Planeswalkers, 2012, 2013) were delisted on PlayStation 3 in North America around May of 2020 according to PSNProfiles forum discussions. The same titles, as well as Magic 2014 and 2015, were then delisted on Steam in November of 2020. No confirmation or explanation has been given by Wizards of the Coast or Stainless Games.
It is possible that the PlayStation delistings were based on low sales or player activity, compatibility issues, or region-specific licensing. Given the delistings on Steam, and WotC’s move away from the platform, it is also possible that the company has decided to focus solely on their own dedicated release, Magic: The Gathering Online. This doesn’t explain why the game remains available globally on Xbox 360 or in other territories on PlayStation 3. However, these versions are expected to be delisted in time.
About the Game
All-new and redesigned, Magic: The Gathering — Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 takes last year’s massive hit game to even greater heights with better graphics, more options, and new challenges!
Face off against the AI, or gather your allies for the new multiplayer format: Archenemy, where you team up to take down a boss opponent. And if one of your fellow Planeswalkers drops out, no problem–the AI will drop in for uninterrupted action!
Featuring ten unique decks, Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 also lets you customize those decks. As you progress in the game, you can enhance your deck by swapping in new, unlockable cards!
