Search for one of the affected games and you’ll see this sad screen
Anyone who has already downloaded any of the affected titles will be able to re-download them if you get a new phone or tablet. What’s more, it’s possible that these games will one day return.
“While we have nothing to announce at this time, given the right situation, these titles may return in an updated form,” Sega explained.
