Grand Theft Auto 4 is no longer sold on Steam

Grand Theft Auto 4 is no longer sold on Steam”

KitGuru Says: Rockstar has likely been looking into this for a little while now, as they will want to put GTA IV on the new Rockstar Games Launcher. Now it's been delisted from Steam as well, though it doesn't actually seem to be related to any grand plans Rockstar have for their own launcher. Yeap, you read that right; the game is no longer available for purchase on Steam's digital service. Interestingly, the Episodes From Liberty City DLC can still be bought for £15/€15/$20.

Update: Grand Theft Auto 4's mysterious disappearance from Steam has been explained, and the culprit revealed: Games For Windows Live rose from the grave to claim another victim. With Games for Windows Live dead, Rockstar can no longer generate new keys for the game, which means that at the moment, it can't sell it digitally on PC. "We are other options for distributing GTAIV for PC and would possibly per chance perchance piece extra recordsdata as quickly as we can". This has happened to other GTA games in the past due to expiring music licenses but this time around, the situation is different. Speaking to Polygon, Rockstar clarified the issue, while mentioning that it's now looking for new ways to get Niko Bellic back on the street. Plainly this system is now not able to producing contemporary keys for GTA 4, which implies that it's also now not able to supporting new gamers by way of Steam. With no official explanation, fans were left to speculate on the reason for the move, but now Rockstar has spoken, pointing the blame finger squarely in the direction of Microsoft's now-defunct Games for Windows Live.
