The Lord of the Rings: War in the North was delisted from Xbox 360 in December of 2018 according to reporting from On Steam its price was set to $0.00 on February 13th, 2019 making it unavailable to buy. The PlayStation 3 version was likely delisted between these two dates. Another Lord of the Rings title from Warner Bros., Guardians of Middle-Earth, was also delisted in late 2018. Both titles were most likely delisted due to expired licensing of the Lord of the Rings properties from Middle-earth Enterprises.
