The Cave was delisted on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U between late March and early April of 2018. The last confirmed availability of the console versions we have found was on March 9th, 2018 for Xbox 360 and March 17th for Wii U. It is possible the console versions were delisted shortly after the 17th in late March. On April 2nd, 2018 the Steam version changed publishers from Sega to Double Fine Productions and remains available exclusively on that platform. The console versions may have been delisted on April 2nd as well or shortly before. It appears Sega chose not to renew their publishing agreement with Double Fine for the console versions of the game.

In 2017, Double Fine issued a blog post about the status of their mobile titles with the impending release of iOS 11 requiring apps to be updated to 64-bit. In it they mention that “The Cave’s future is uncertain, and is in SEGA’s hands, but it will not be updated”. The game appears to be unavailable from the iTunes store but remains available on Android, published by Double Fine, as of this writing. The OUYA version became inaccessible in June of 2019 when the Ouya service was shut down.

About the Game

The Cave is a new adventure game from Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion creator Ron Gilbert, and Double Fine Productions, the award-winning studio behind Psychonauts and Brütal Legend. Assemble your team of three from seven unlikely adventurers, each with their own unique personalities and stories, then descend into the mysterious depths to explore locations including a subterranean amusement park and a medieval castle, not to mention a fully armed and ready-to-launch nuclear tipped ICBM. The Cave awaits.
