In 2021, Capcom removed several games from Steam due to a conflict with the remnants of Games for Windows Live. While the service stopped receiving support back in 2014, its servers continued to operate till the end of the decade. However, many titles utilizing the service required critical updates to ensure the proper function of multiplayer.

Street Fighter X Tekken along with Resident Evil: Operation Racoon City, and some other titles were among those placed on a temporary “purchase halt” as Capcom investigated the issue with GFWL. Unfortunately, Operation Raccoon City has been retired from Steam and is no longer available on the platform. Despite being a commercial success after being slammed with negative reviews, it wasn’t able to return to Steam.
