Spec Ops: The Line’s sudden removal from Steam baffles its director: ‘Why has this happened?’

Highly-regarded third-person military shooter Spec Ops: The Line has been removed from sale on Steam and other digital storefronts, and nobody seems to know why—not even the game’s designer and director.

Spec Ops: The Line came out in 2012. It didn’t sell especially well—it was a decent third-person military shooter dropped in among games like Modern Warfare 3 and Black Ops 2, and that’s a tough spot for any game—but we still talk about it today because of the story. It’s a Heart of Darkness-style road to hell that dives headlong into the horrors of war and the trauma it inflicts on soldiers and civilians, with moments (one in particular) that make Modern Warfare 2’s infamous No Russian level look almost quaint.
