The multiverse just got a little less crowded. Video game publisher Activision has removed Marvel: Ultimate Alliance and Ultimate Alliance 2 from all modern gaming platforms.
As first reported in a Reddit thread, the action role-playing games Marvel: Ultimate Alliance and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 have been delisted from gaming platforms, including the Microsoft Store, the PlayStation store and Steam.
There had been some speculation on ResetERA that the removal was about to occur, given a recent price drop on both games, but no official statement has been issued by Activision or Marvel. Previously, 2013’s Deadpool followed the same path on its way to being delisted, though Activision did make an announcement prior for that game.
Featuring over 140 characters, 2006’s Marvel: Ultimate Alliance and 2008’s sequel, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2, were action role-playing video games originally developed for consoles and published by Activision. Ultimate Alliance allowed up to four players to team-up to defeat Dr. Doom and the Masters of Evil, while the sequel followed the plot of Marvel's original “Civil War” storyline.
Thought there has been no confirmation from Activision, it seems as though anyone who already owns the games is still be able to play them.
