Even though the listings for these games can still be found on Steam, there’s no longer a purchase link. Speculation suggests that perhaps that the licenses for these games had expired but that hasn’t been confirmed as yet.

Both games, based on the popular Tolkien books, were developed by a UK-based studio called Traveller’s Tales. They were published by Warner Bros. Lego: The Hobbit only covered the first two movies from the Peter Jackson trilogy and the proposed DLC which would have added The Battle of the Five Armies never came out.

It was noted last month that both Lego titles were free at the Humble Store which led to reports that perhaps Warner Bros. could be phasing them out because there wasn’t enough demand. These titles have been around for quite some time and while other Lego titles have been around for longer, it’s clear that something’s the matter.

Warner Bros. has only said that those who own copies of the game will be able to download them still but those who are new to them may have to track down a physical copy.
