Peter Molyneux's Godus games removed from Steam

Godus and Godus Wars are being removed from sale on Steam.

That's according to a post on the platform by developer 22cansspotted by PC Gamer – in which the company said that the titles were being ditched due to a change Amazon Web Services is implementing soon.

Godus first launched in Early Access back in 2013. It was designed by development icon Peter Molyneux and was intended to be a spiritual successor to his god game Populous. The Steam version of the game has not been updated since 2015.

22cans also released a more combat-focused version of the game called Godus Wars in 2016, though this has also not been updated in forever. 

"22cans would like to share important news regarding our games, Godus and Godus Wars," the studio wrote.

"Regrettably, due to an upcoming technical change to Amazon Web Services, affecting our ability to serve necessary game files to new users, these titles are to be withdrawn from the Steam store. Please be assured that existing players can continue to enjoy these games without interruption.

"We sincerely appreciate the incredible support from our players over the past decade and extend our heartfelt thanks to you all."
