|Delisting:||October 01, 2018 - Removed from Sale
December 03, 2018 - Service Shutdown
|Available On:||Steam (Download Code)|
Magicka: Wizards of the Square Tablet was removed from sale on Steam on October 1st, 2018. The game was removed and its online features eventually shut down in reaction to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that went into effect in May of 2018. Paradox announced the decision and their plans on the game’s official forums on October 15th, 2018:
Today is the sad day that we must tell you that Magicka Wizards of the Square Tablet is being shut down. With the changes to GDPR, a set of policies and regulations that even the wisest of Wizards must adhere to, we sadly need to disenchant and deactivate the Square Tablet.
This game is not compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation and will be brought down from all distributions platforms. This means that by December 3rd, 2018, owners of Magicka Wizards of the Square Tablet will see degradation of services and availability of the game’s features as we discontinue support on it.
Thank you for your understanding through this process, and as always thank you for supporting the game and our efforts!
Magicka: Wizards of the Square Tablet may have remained available to purchase from Desura until that service was shut down in 2016. The game has also been delisted on iOS and Android platforms.
