Evil Twin Artworks have announced that the Warhammer Fantasy-themed naval game, Man O’ War: Corsair – Warhammer Naval Battles, will be delisted from Steam.

The game is loosely based on Man O’ War, a specialist game released in the early ’90s by Games Workshop that dealt with naval combat in the Warhammer Fantasy universe.

Man O’ War: Corsair – Warhammer Naval Battles entered Early Access in 2016, and later received a full release in 2017. The game allows players to assemble and manage a fleet and explore the vast seas of the Old World, as they battle rival fleets and survive attacks by rampaging sea monsters.

Details regarding the delisting are very scarce. All we know is that it revolves around a change in the licensing deal the developers had with Games Workshop. Evil Twin Artworks did not mention an exact date for the game’s removal, or what this means for the GamersGate or GOG versions.

At this time of writing, the game is still available to purchase.

You can find the rundown (via GamersGate) below:

The Old World

A captain in Man O’ War: Corsair can sail the coast of a huge continent in the Warhammer world. Visiting over 50 ports from Erengrad to Sartosa, the sea is yours to explore.
A heroic adventurer does not only have enemy ships to contend with. The deep and unexplored oceans hold terrifying creatures that few see and live to tell the tale.
These deadly creatures emerging from the deep sea will chill blood and drop jaws in equal measure. The wise would attempt to flee but those brave enough to tackle such creatures will be famed throughout the world.

Here there be monsters….

Man O’ War: Corsair – Warhammer Naval Battles is, for the time being, available on Windows PC, Linux, and Mac (all via GamersGate, GOG and Steam).
