PlayStation Blog (EU) Announcement
Pirates: Treasure Hunters was removed from Steam on September 1st, 2016 and was likely removed from PlayStation 4 on or shortly before this date. The game’s servers appear to have gone offline in August according to speculation on the PSNProfiles forums.
The Spanish developer, Virtual Toys, ceased operation in June of 2016 but by July the majority of the staff had reunited as the subsidiary, Saber Interactive Spain S.L.. As a result of these changes, combined with the game’s tepid response, Pirates may have been abandoned as other Virtual Toys releases remain available to download as of this writing.
Seemingly alongside the release of the PlayStation 5 in November of 2020, Pirates: Treasure Hunters reappeared on the PlayStation Store, both on the console and on the redesigned website. As of February 2022 the game cannot be found on the PlayStation Store on a PlayStation 4. Although the game, all of its microtransactions and even it’s PlayStation Plus bonus pack are displayed, none can be downloaded or purchased. An error stating “something went wrong” is displayed when a user attempts to buy or claim them. It would appear that the game’s listing was accidentally reactivated under the free-to-play store category around when the PlayStation 5 launched.
