Remember how the 2019 Game Awards proclaimed a Fast & Furious video game as its “one more thing?” with Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez presenting it. The game has been removed from all digital stores without any notice. If you’re looking for a play about movie adaptations, it feels like it was taken from the early days of licensed games.

Fast & Furious Crossroads’ website stated that the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC would cease to be available for digital purchase starting April 29, 2022, at 4 a.m. EDT. Anyone who has already purchased the game digitally can still download it to their computer. The game’s online features and functions will also remain available for those who have not yet bought it.

We have reached out to Bandai Namco, the publisher, to learn more. If we receive a response, we will update this story. It is possible that the licensees no longer hold the license. However, the game launched in August 2020, so it doesn’t seem like it has been around for two years. This appears to be a short-term solution for any business deal. Imagine if the game was well received and decided to pull it with such short notice.

This would cause a lot more commotion, as preservation is an issue. However, we hear more about it when these are games that people like and care about. Fast & Furious Crossroads wasn’t well-received. My personal opinion is that preserving a lousy game is as essential as conserving critical darlings or big-sellers. It was something that was, for a brief moment, high-profile. Even if the game is not a historical landmark, it’s a bad thing that people work so hard to make difficult access impossible. It didn’t matter if it was great.
