A staffer on GOG mentioned that due to legal reasons, the classic Delta Force series is going to be removed from all storefronts.

Here's what the GOG team said:

Hey all, I don’t know what’s wrong with this week, but I have to post another delisting news.

Just now, we’ve received a request that we have to delist all Delta Force titles that are available in our store, due to legal reasons that are beyond our control. Affected titles are:

Delta Force: https://www.gog.com/game/delta_force
Delta Force 2: https://www.gog.com/game/delta_force_2
Delta Force: Land Warrior: https://www.gog.com/game/delta_force_land_warrior
Delta Force: Task Force Dagger: https://www.gog.com/game/delta_force_task_force_dagger
Delta Force Xtreme: https://www.gog.com/game/delta_force_xtreme
Delta Force: Black Hawk Down Platinum Pack: https://www.gog.com/game/delta_force_black_hawk_down_platinum_pack

The removals will happen today - June 7th, 1 PM UTC.

They will be removed from all storefronts.

So you have just under an hour from this post until they're gone if you did want to quickly grab them. Delisting means no one can buy them, but they will not vanish from your own library. The notice from GOG does clearly say "all storefronts" so they will presumably vanish from Steam too.

A shame, this always makes preserving gaming history far more difficult, but that's not to say they won't return at some point in future. 

There is a new game coming called Delta Force: Hawk Ops, which will be a free to play shooter. So it will likely have some form of anti-cheat, which means the likelihood of it working on Linux / Steam Deck is pretty slim.

Quoting: Liam DaweUpdate, they're gone from GOG now, but still on Steam for now.

The only one that's not there on Steam is Delta Force Black Hawk Down (main game and not the DLC).

Ugh... With old emulators and such being hit hard by Nintendo and such, and now this (For whoever is hitting them), I never thought I'd see the day where I actually put piracy as an option on my list of places to get games.

Unusual take , but :
The new game they are putting out looks crap.
(TL DR if you did not see the trailer , it starts out with a graphically upgraded Black Hawk Down that gets you excited then jumps into the future to the actual game - lasers , drones , Rainbow Six Siege basically)
And i am wondering if they removed the old games on purpose so you can't compare to them anymore ?

I wouldn't say that, there are probably videos to be found on the Internet that aren't going to disappear in the same fashion. Possibly a strategy to boost sales if the official statement was false.

Honestly, that wouldn't surprise me, given that one reason so many game companies lash out at emulation and the like (including doing so in an official capacity - there are companies that would definitely rather not have their older games available) is partly because they know that they can't compete with the past.

It was actually my first thought as soon as it was mentioned that they have a new free-to-play game coming out.
