Developer Frogwares announced in a letter posted to Twitter on September 26th, 2019 (reprinted in full here) that several of their titles that were published by Focus Home Interactive had been delisted or were under threat of being delisted soon. According to Frogwares, Focus Home Interactive had enacted a new policy regarding all of its associated titles giving the publisher the right to remove any games not in their current “catalog” from digital storefronts without first transferring these titles back to the developer or IP holder.
On October 4th, 2019 Frogwares released a statement confirming that 9 out of the 10 affected “store listings” had been removed from sale. The number indicated ten separate releases (between consoles and PC) from publisher Focus Home Interactive including:
– Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments
– The Testament of Sherlock Holmes (previously delisted)
– Sherlock Holmes versus Jack The Ripper (previously delisted)
– Magrunner: Dark Pulse
Frogwares also announced at the time that they were able to acquire publishing rights to Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments, keeping it on sale on Steam, and bringing it to GOG.com for the first time. The studio prepared a free memorial artbook to commemorate their long history with Sherlock Holmes and for fans to enjoy while they continued working to bring their games back to storefronts. Frogwares titles on GOG.com were also put on sale [Archive] through October 11th.
