Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 took itself off of the Epic Games Store temporarily rather than take part in the recent "Mega Sale"

Epic’s first "Mega Sale," launched yesterday, is causing some pricing and availability hiccups for a few publishers. As Kotaku lays out, a couple of games in the store’s small catalog seem to have removed themselves from the platform rather than participate in the temporary price reductions.

Paradox Interactive’s Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 and Klei Entertainment’s Oxygen Not Included are no longer available on the Epic Games Store as of this writing. Bloodlines 2 was actually removed shortly after being listed at a reduced sale price, a state of affairs the Epic’s Sergei Galyonkin said happened because Paradox was unaware of the "sale mechanism."

"If a developer or publisher chooses to not participate in our sales, we will honor that decision," an Epic representative told Kotaku. "Paradox Interactive has chosen to not participate in the Epic Mega Sale and the game has been temporarily removed from sale. If you’ve purchased Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 during the period when the discount did apply at the time of check out, Epic will honor that price."
