Stranger Things 3 Is Being Removed From Steam And GoG. The game was available for a limited time on Windows and macOS devices on Steam and GOG, but Netflix seems to have no plans to release a mobile game anytime soon. It is unclear whether Netflix will have game apps exclusively available for mobile devices or whether PC and console players will also be able to access Netflix games. However, Netflix Mobile Gaming is still in its infancy and is not yet widely available.
As of 31 August, the game will no longer be available for purchase, but those who already own the game will still be able to download and play it. If you bought Stranger Things 3 through Steam before August 31, 2021, it’ll remain in your library and be available for launch. The game is included in the Netflix subscription on the streaming site.
If you bought it from the Steam Store before 31 August 2021, it will remain in your library and playable. Those who own the game before it is removed through the storefront will still have full access to the game, even if it is no longer available for purchase. If you owned the game before it was removed from the Steam Store, you still have full access to it, even if the game is no longer available for purchase.
The official reason for this has not been made public, but it has not gone unnoticed that Netflix announced its intention to integrate video games into its platform. The purpose of the cancellation list is not being offered, but I suspect they are reclaiming the management of their property for something in addition to their personal gambling ambitions.
Netflix announced earlier this year that it would begin developing and releasing games. In May the company announced a new line of games. This was fueled in July by the appointment of former Oculus vice president of content Mike Verdu as vice president for game development.
Netflix also mentioned Stranger Things 3’s problems with video games that are offered in its app as advertisements and in-app purchases that are included in Netflix memberships. The company said that Stranger Things games were offered in the Netflix app without advertisements or in-game purchases associated with Netflix membership. Netflix is also testing the mobile version of the games in Poland on its app.
The Stranger Things games will continue to be available through the Netflix app and may not have commercial or in-app purchases and may be added with Netflix memberships, the company said. This is part of Netflix’s plan to include video games for its subscribers.
The real reason for the removal of the official Stranger Things game has not been revealed, but it is believed that Netflix has full ownership of its content. It is likely that the removal of the games from Steam and GOG has some to do with the expiring Nintendo Switch license since the publisher who ported the game to Mass Entertainment was shut down last year. Netflix, however, has branched out with the game itself, including it as part of its service for television and movies, so we can see new Stranger Things releases.
With her sights set on a new season of Stranger Things, Valve might want to recuperate from the feeling of being pulled from a game on a show. The previously announced deletion of the Dead by Daylight: Stranger Things DLC from Behaviour Interactive was more abrupt than the one announced on November 17, and the map from Hawkins National Laboratory was also removed from play. The game is being withdrawn from sale with no sequel in sight, as we saw with the delisting of Forza Motorsport 7s last month.
The Steam announcement, however, was made on August 26, the day after Netflix made its “Making Netflix’s gaming app a test” announcement. Steam ads also went up that day, a day before Netflix announced a test of the games app.
