It looks like another license to the Games Workshop’s Warhammer franchise is expiring soon, this time resulting in the delisting of Man O’ War: Corsair. Evil Twin Artworks posted the announcement on Steam on January 20th and followed up with a comment that the game would be on sale one last time starting January 29th. The sale will likely run for at least a week so while the team hasn’t given an exact date for the delisting, it probably won’t happen until mid-February.
It’s uncertain at this time if the GOG.com version of the game will also be delisted but given that the Warhammer license is to blame it seems very likely.
It is with a heavy heart, we must announce the end of Man O’ War: Corsair on the Steam Store. The game is going to be discontinued on the Steam Store due to changes in the the license agreement with Games Workshop.
I for one will still be playing it in my Steam library and it won’t affect anyone who has purchased the game on Steam. The game was released on Early Access in 2016 and as Man O’ War and GW fans it was amazing to work on our own little pocket of Warhammer.
I want to thank the community for their support and hope you are all ok during what is a difficult time. One day soon I hope we can all come together again at gaming events, whether video games or battling on the tabletops!Evil Twin Artworks announcement
For the time being Man O’ War: Corsair remains available on Steam, GOG.com, and through GamersGate. It will join the ranks of several other delisted Warhammer titles from recent years including Legacy of Dorn: Herald of Oblivion, Eisenhorn: XENOS, and Space Hulk Ascension. I’ve added a tentative mid-February date to the Watch List calendar and will have a page up on the site soon. Thanks to @Dimchkin and NicheGamer for pointing out the news.
