Delisting

Both Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures and Pac-Man Museum were delisted from Steam on July 9th, 2020. The games were likely delisted around this same time on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in North American and Asian territories. Despite celebrating 2020 as the 40th Anniversary of Pac-Man, Namco has unexpectedly decided to remove these titles from sale without warning or explanation.

As other Pac-Man titles have been delisted in specific territories in the past, it suggests that there was some complication with the way Bandai Namco represented themselves on these releases. For example, in 2014 the company changed team names from Namco Bandai Games and Namco Bandai Studios to become Bandai Namco Games and Bandai Namco Studio, respectively. Then in 2015 the entire company rebranded as Bandai Namco Entertainment. 

It is assumed that these name changes are at least partially to blame for the delistings, requiring each release to be updated or to essentially be republished on each platform. Given the titles age, sales, and mediocre reception, Bandai Namco may have simply chosen to remove them from sale.
