Publisher and developer Asmodee already has a digital board game Disease removed from Steam. No proper announcement was made before, leave some fans in a state of shock.

While the news isn’t any better for Switch players (yes, it’s also leaving the eShop), it looks like the game will be available on the platform for a bit longer. So, if you haven’t downloaded it yet, now might be the time to buy it from Nintendo’s digital storefront.

In an emailed response, Asmodee apparently told a player that the game will be leaving the Xbox store on January 31 and will be removed from the Nintendo Switch at the end of July. Unfortunately, the team did not can reveal exactly why it was withdrawn.

“We’ve been working hard for over 4 years on the Pandemic and pulling it out of stores was not an easy choice. This decision is made with a heavy heart for a multitude of reasons that we cannot be disclosed.

“Currently, only PC, App Store, and Google Play have been removed. Microsoft’s version will launch after January 31, 2022, and then Nintendo Switch at the end of July 2022.”

The same response email further explains how long before the game has been purchased and downloaded before being removed from the Steam store, players will still be able to access the title. And from there, if it’s uninstalled, it can be reinstalled through Steam’s game library.

So on Switch you will need to buy it before end of July if you want to be able to download and play it. All traces of the game have also been removed from the official Asmodee Digital website.

Some theories believe its removal may be due to its “pandemic” theme, while others suggest that Asmodee may be clearing the way for a new release. Of course, it’s all just fan speculation for now.

If we hear any updates, we’ll let you know.
