Venice Deluxe was delisted on Steam on February 24th, 2021. No advanced warning or explanation has been given. An EA Community Manager replied to a support forum post about two other delisted PopCap titles in 2020 and their response likely holds true for Venice Deluxe. “I am not aware of any plans for those games to be re-released,” said EA_Darko in regards to Hammer Heads Deluxe and Rocket Mania! Deluxe. “I’m not even sure if EA still has the rights but I will pass your feedback on to the team”.
The delisting could be related to licensing from the original developer as many other titles from Electronic Arts and PopCap Games remain available on Steam. It is also possible that incompatibilities with newer hardware and a lack of resources to dedicate to support caused this delisting.
About the Game
Venice is sinking and only you can save it! From the floating fortress of your golden gondola, you’ll restore the city by returning its lost treasures. Sling costly coins, launch lovely lyres and ricochet ruby rings into the corresponding spaces overhead.
