Confirmed: The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian Removed From Steam

Yup, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian is a goner.

Well, aren’t we clever? Last week, we reported on the possible removal of The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, as it had suddenly gone on an immense price cut, without warning or other pattern available. It turns out that was exactly what happened. Clicking on the hub for the game now redirects to the storefront. Additionally, no mention of the license tie-in is available elsewhere.

Neither publisher Disney nor developer Traveller’s Tales have spoken out about the removal of The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, but the end of a licensing agreement looks like the logical conclusion. At the date of the discount, the game had officially been out for seven years exactly.

Strangely enough, the addition for the licensed property was made fairly recently. It’s only been since October 2014 that publisher Disney decided to put the Narnia title on Steam, along with a dozen or so other titles. These other games, however, are more directly related to the company, with titles like Toy Story, Tron or Pirates of the Caribbean. Racing games Pure and Split/Second were also part of that package.

For those wondering about the future of their ownership, Steam does still allow you to download The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian if you’ve bought it earlier. The download should take you about 8GB of space. Recently, game preservation issues have sprung up with some organizations trying to limit the ways games can be conserved for future use, even after takedowns. For instance, certain online projects would require private servers to run, which could potentially infringe on a company’s property of said assets. It’s unlikely that this is necessary for The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian so far, however, since the game is still available on other channels. For example, the game is still featured and available for purchase on Gamersgate.
