Developer and publisher BonusXP announced on August 25th, 2021 that the Steam release of Stranger Things 3: The Game would be delisted on August 31st. GOG.com then posted on August 30th to announce that the game would also be removed from sale on their platform on the following day. BonusXP’s announcement on Steam follows:
On Aug. 31, 2021, Stranger Things 3: The Game will be removed from sale on Steam. We’re very grateful for all the Stranger Things fans that traveled back in time with us to the Summer of ’85 for this adventure through Hawkins. If you purchased the game prior to August 31, 2021 on Steam, it will remain in your library and continue to be playable.Thanks, The BonusXP Team
Unconfirmed ahead of time, by the end of September 1st all remaining versions of the game were also delisted. This includes iOS and Android mobile platforms, the Epic Games Store release, and all versions for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Like the delisting of Stranger Things content in Dead by Daylight, the cause for this delisting appears to be expired licensing of the property. However, speculation suggests at this time that Netflix may have pulled the game from other platforms in order to offer it as an exclusive on their upcoming Netflix Gaming initiative.
