An email from Sanzaru Games and Oculus was reportedly delivered to owners of MARVEL Powers United VR on December 1st, 2020. This email announced that the game had already been removed from sale and that it would become unplayable for existing owners after March 1st, 2021. The game’s single-player mode was only accessible if no other players could be found for matchmaking, indicating that the title was always-on and required a server connection in order to play. The message from the team’s email follows:
The time has come for us to say goodbye to MARVEL Powers United VR. Allowing the community to take on the role of fan-favborite Marvel Super Heroes in VR has brought us immense joy. WHile we’ll miss multiplayer matches with the amazing MARVEL Powers United VR community, we hope you’ll continue to explore all the amazing experiences the Oculus platform has to offer.
You are able to continue playing the game through March 1, 2021, but MARVEL Powers United VR is no longer available for new users to purchase or download. We recommend that you delete the game prior to March 1, 2021, to avoid dead space taken up on your device.

A retail Oculus bundle including the game was released in July of 2018 but the box indicates that only a download code for the game is included but is likely invalid for redemption after December 1st, 2020.
