It's important to note that the game can still be purchased in store and online from retailers such as Amazon.

However, Sony is no longer responsible for the digital distribution of the game.

There is also no time frame given as to when the game will make its return. Those yet to purchase the game will hope it's soon!

Sony Certification

In order for a game to be made available on the PlayStation Store, it has to be certified by Sony themselves.

POOR PERFORMANCE: The game runs atrociously in last-gen hardware

This begs the question, why did Sony certify the game just to remove it days later?

It's possible that Sony passed the certification on the game after playing it on a PS5 and PS4 Pro.

However, players on the PS4 base edition and PS4 slim have experienced many issues.

Xbox Soon?

After these issues, could Microsoft soon remove the game from their store as well?

ISSUES: Could Microsoft also make the decision to remove the game?

Users on Xbox One have been experiencing the same issues, so we don't see why not.

However, it is only Sony that has made the big decision so far, so it remains to be seen if Microsoft will follow suit.

The game will still be available from physical stores regardless, so issues will still persist for now!
