Unhappy Not available for purchase anymore?

I wanted to purchase the Venice expansion today and it says its not available for purchase, does this mean it won't ever be or will it be available later on?

Thanks!
I don't really like Impluse, but as Steam isn't carrying it anymore, for some inexplicable reason, I guess I'll have to recover my username and password for Impulse and get it there.

They don't carry it because Ubisoft refuses to patch the Steam version of the game for US players. This means, among other things, you could put 100 hours into a game and have the savegames all get corrupted, losing everything in the blink of an eye.

Ubisoft support sucks.

Plus I don't understand why they are not patching the steam version because that will stop steam from getting games from them. You would think or steam & Ubisoft don't really care about us. Plus people will not buy games from steam if it is a Ubisoft game. Bad move on both companies.

Yeah it's really sad that none of them seem to care about the Steam version of Anno 1404 (and the addon although this does not concerm directly since I don't have it). Just pulling the plug and don't sell it no more does not help.

Did Ubi ever state why it stopped support? That's pretty crappy of them to just shaft a whole chunk of their user base.

I think that it was steam, not Ubi, that decided to stop selling the game, as Ubi doesn't want to patch the steam version. Should Ubi ever want to patch the steam version, it will be available again.

Man, game publishers just keep getting sleazier and sleazier. Is there any other industry that treats its customers anywhere near as badly as EA, Activision or Ubisoft?
