The Saboteur was delisted on Steam between July and October of 2015. On July 24th, 2015 the game’s title and URL on Steam were changed to reference an Electronic Arts EULA. On October 7th, 2015 the game’s Steam Community Hub was disabled.
Shortly after the game’s release, EA shut down developer Pandemic Studios. However, The Saboteur has remained available on both GOG.com and Origin since release, ruling out a relationship between the game’s removal and its defunct developer. It is possible that the Steam version suffered from irreparable performance issues — or simply low user ratings — and EA chose to wipe it from the platform.
Peculiarly, the game’s PlayStation.com page features a “Buy Download” button but based on release data, the game was never available to download on either PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360. Throughout 2014 the game’s Day One DLC, The Midnight Show, was removed from PlayStation and Xbox storefronts but as of this writing it has returned to the PlayStation Network.
