Some of you may remember that a couple of days ago the indie remake of the fan favourite Streets of Rage was finally completed after nearly a decade of work. Well it seems it also caught Sega’s attention as they have contacted the team who made it and have made them take it down.
The game (which didn’t use any of Sega’s code and was free to play) was only up for a couple of day’s before Sega intervened. Seems like you fans better keep onto your exe’s for now, since it looks like this fan remake isn’t going to come back any-time soon. No word on anything official from either sides here, just that Sega had contacted the team and now the links to the file are gone. You know, Sega I love you but this is really shitty. Hopefully something can be worked out, but for now it seems the game is not available to play, for now.
