GOG.com has confirmed that Way of the Samurai 4 will be leaving their DRM-free storefront on Friday, July 30th. If this sounds familiar, the same thing happened with Way of the Samurai 3 earlier this year and while it did return to Steam a few months later, it hasn’t made its way back to GOG.
We’d like to inform you that, on developer’s request, Way of the Samurai 4 will be delisted from our catalog on Friday, July 30th, 2 PM UTC. We’re doing our best to have the title back on GOG.COM as soon as possible. For everyone who purchased the titles prior to delisting, they will remain in their GOG library.GOG.com announcement
The publishing rights have already changed hands from Ghostlight to Spike Chunsoft on Steam so it looks like that version won’t suffer even a temporary delisting. But if you’re at all interested in GOG’s offering you might want to snap it up this week. Way of the Samurai 4 also remains available to download on PlayStation 3 (AU, EU, NA) where it was handled by NIS America and XSEED, as well as on the streaming PlayStation Now service.
Thanks to Dimchkin for the heads-up on this one. I’ve added the date to the Watch List calendar and will have a page up on the site later.
