H2 Interactive announced in July 2022 that their publishing deal with Moss and UFO Interactive had expired and as a result Raiden IV: OverKill would be removed from sale on Steam and on July 26th. The 2015 arcade shooter isn’t the latest in the long-running series but it did turn out to be a well-received entry compared to its successor, Raiden V. The digital PlayStation 3 release of Raiden IV appears to be safe for now as it was published by UFO Interactive themselves.

With our publishing deal expired, we will be selling the game until July 26, 2022. Existing owners who have purchased Raiden IV: OverKill before the expiration date will be able to play the game permanently. Thank you so much for your interest in Raiden IV: OverKill.

Steam Store Announcement

Due to licensing rights we’d like to inform you that Raiden IV: OverKill will be delisted from our catalog on Tuesday, July 26th, 1 PM UTC. For everyone who purchased the title prior to delisting, it will remain in their GOG library. Announcement

It appears that Raiden IV: OverKill was delisted on PC ahead of the 2023 release of Raiden IV x MIKADO remix. The remix edition has been out on consoles in Japan, and worldwide on Switch, since 2021. With the new PC port being handled by NIS America, the older versions of OverKill from H2 Interactive had to be removed from sale.
