Far Cry 4 Disappears From Xbox One Store, Renders Digital Copies Unplayable

Ubisoft are tonight “actively investigating” after issues affecting Far Cry 4 players on Xbox One came to light.

Reddit users first posted reporting problems with the game loading on Microsoft’s console this morning, and the issue has since been acknowledged by the games publisher on their official forums – although exactly what’s happened is still somewhat of a mystery.

Ubisoft’s community manager took to the forums to suggest those affected contacted MS Support “since it appears that the game has been removed from the Store – this has happened for some – please check if it’s still available to you – if not, it ‘could’ be related to that”, although, again, there’s not much clarity as to what exactly’s going on. He continued, “however as I say, Ubisoft are looking into the issue as a matter of urgency.”

With the game now, however temporarily, delisted, the finer points of licensing on the new-gen consoles has been questioned by fans. Will we – unlike previously – lose access to our digital purchases if Microsoft or Sony decide to pull titles from their respective store-fronts, for whatever reason?
