Ghost Trick's been pulled from iOS completely, even for those who bought it

How do we make 'to P.T.' a verb?

Uh-oh, this is starting to become a trend. First the iOS port of BioShock was removed from the iOS app store and users’ purchase histories, meaning they couldn’t even download the game if they’d paid for it.

2K later said iOS BioShock (BiOShock?) would be returning “in the near future,” but it seems like it gave Capcom ideas with its popular game Ghost Trick.

According to TouchArcade, the game was removed from sale months ago for some bug fixing and patching, however now it’s been removed from the purchase history of those who’ve already bought it.

This means people who bought any or all of the game's episodes can no longer download it, and only those who have it installed on their devices right now still have access. Revoking access to things people have bought (even if it is just “a license”) without any justification is apparently now totally okay and not crappy in the slightest…

We’ve approached Capcom for comment, and will update should we ever get a response, but this being an iOS game from up to five years ago I wouldn’t get your hopes up.
