RISK: Factions was delisted on Xbox 360 no later than June 26th, 2014 according to this report from TrueAchievements.com. It was presumably delisted on PlayStation 3 around the same time. The game would not be delisted on Steam until October 5th, 2020. Although this last delisting occurred years after EA’s license from Hasbro expired it remains the most likely cause for the game’s removal from Steam.
Electronic Arts held the Hasbro license from 2007 to 2014 and released several games based on their board games on numerous platforms. Ubisoft announced in August of 2014 that it was the new license holder for Hasbro properties resulting in the delisting of this and most other EA published titles.
