EA have removed F1 2020 from Steam and it’s status is now listed as retired. If you own F1 2020 or can buy a Steam key from somewhere now, you’ll still be able to run it and activate those keys, but the official Steam store listing no longer allows you to purchase.

I really hate this. While older titles were disabled because of issues with Microsoft’s XLive being ‘broken’ or due to historic car licenses expiring, it really is disappointing that since EA have taken over (February, 2021) so many titles have been pulled. They join other Codemasters properties like Project Cars and some older GRID projects on the pile.

F1 2010 – September 21, 2017
F1 2011 – May 5, 2021
F1 2012 – March 11, 2022

F1 2013 – December 31, 2016
F1 2014 – March 11, 2022
F1 2015 – March 11, 2022
F1 2016 – March 11, 2022
F1 2017 – March 11, 2022
F1 2018 – March 11, 2022
F1 2019 – April 18, 2022
F1 2020 – March 15, 2023

This means that only F1 2021 and F1 22 remain on-sale today.

It feels like a lot of the bigger studios have no reverence or respect for the history of video games at all really. Where we might merrily play games from the 80's and 90's and 00's; in the future will games from the 2020's even work given that nearly all of them have built in "phone home" internet connection requirements that will disappear as and when the studio turn off the servers supporting them.
