Not sure when this happened, but it's disappeared from the Steam store. At least the fact that it was such a disappointing game ended up being a blessing in disguise; imagine if it was the game we all wanted for decades only for it to get delisted 8-10 months after release.

Looks like it's gone from PSN too.

Hopefully it means they are losing the licensing right to TMNT if Activision owns it. I know Ubisoft had the license at one point.

TMNT deserves better than the plethora of mediocre to shit games. I did want to pick this up cheap but since it's gone i will have to get a ps4 physical edition when i can get it for $10.

It is a damn shame how bad this game is. I had such high hopes for it from the trailers I saw and with Platinum leading it I was excited. I will say though that once it was known that it didn't have couch co-op a lot of my interest went out the window.

Activision maybe getting out of the licensing game?

Whatever license they negotiated must have been a joke if a game released last spring is already delisted. I've never seen something get removed that fast before. If it was a good game, this would have stung even more.

License expiring explains why Activision rushed it out so fast.

Good this game was garbage. I knew from the trailers that it was gonna play terribly and I was right. I still decided to play through it once and that was abysmal. At least Transformers Devastation was good.

Who would realistically pick up the TMNT license? No one does licensed console games in the west anymore.

The Fast and the Furious game they made a few years ago also hit the chopping block. So maybe. Seems like the Transformers games and Duck Dynasty survived another year.

That was Masaki Yamanaka. TMNT was helmed by Eiro Shirahama...who previously directed The Legend of Korra. Go figure.

Jeez. I mean, the game was terrible (my worst game of the year, and I absolutely adore Platinum), but this is a shitty way for any game to end up. This is probably, what, a good six, seven weeks of work from Platinum just up and gone.

Yeaaah I think Platinum should "move him". He's clearly not fit to be a director.
Hell, Transformers was likely done in the same time and that was a vastly better game. But we can't prove it...

It's really not a bad game. I feel like most people have forgotten what an actual bad game is. It was, however, very underwhelming and a big missed opportunity considering it was a property + developer dream project.

Devastation was directed by Kenji Saito, who previously worked on MGR Revengence. Guess he has a better understanding on how to make an action game with a shorter time and budget.

Well, we now know the game's quality (or lack thereof) was irrelevant if it was never intended to be sold for more than a few months anyway. If they deliver the product everyone had been asking for, the outcome would have been the same. At least we got Transformers out of the collaboration.

Well, what I know for sure is that High Moon needs to go independent or find better publisher to work with, cuz Activision is making them work like slaves to help making their other games and not letting them make their own. High Moon is VERY talanted and passionate team, just like Rocksteady. Transformers Cybertron games was amazing, Deadpool also was great and I'm sure they could have made amazing TMNT game.

Release them from your corporate and greedy shit, you corporate bastards!

I kinda want to give the guy one more chance but he stops directing, I won't be upset.

I don't doubt Platinum's development chops. But it seems even they can't surmount an Activision-style "rush a licensed game out the door" scheme.

I would love to get a Saito game with a lot of time under the oven. His games have potential, but he always seems to get the short development cycles.

While I agree with your point overall, I have to imagine Platinum would have given this property a much better game had they been allowed better time and/or resources. The fact that the license has been pulled so quickly seems to indicate it was rushed out the door even more so than was heavily rumored to make whatever money they could with the time available

This game was made on most likely a short development time and low budget to coincide with the new tmnt film release. So ehh.

Although I do feel like the director had a serious role to play in this games lackluster everything.

TMNT Telltale? TMNT Lego? And what do you mean nobody does licensed games you have a new Spider-Man game, Batman games, Lego Games based on every fucking license known to man. You have South Park coming out with a new one, Adventure Time, Friday the 13th and a laundry list of anime games that come and are pretty successful in the west.

TMNT isn't just shitty Micahel Bay movies it still has a big fanbase and a successful show that is currently airing. TMNT is legit license that in the right hands could make money and a great game.

The art was ace (Mateus Santolouco forever) I enjoyed the story, but the game play was ass loads of ass.

Inconceivable how they could have fucked it up so much.
