XIII will be removed from our catalog at the end of 2012.

It will NOT be removed from your accounts, but you will not be able to buy it anymore.
Will it be gone for good, or will you be working to get it back?
thanks for the tip!

been eyeing this one since the scavenger hunt,
had fun with this one at least 3 computers back.

if we get it before the end of the year will we be able to keep re-downloading it in the future as long as its in our GOG account?
(im going to back it up anyways but in the event of data loss on my end)

Good question, I guess it would depend on why the game is being pulled. More then likely Ubisoft's licence to use XII has finally expired and probably felt it was not worth renewing or couldn't renew it, and given that Ubisoft still owns the rights to the game itself as it was made by their Paris division/studio then I wouldn't hold my breath as it would require Ubisoft and whatever parties attached to the XII licence to come some sort of a agreement and a more then likely revenue split between all parties.

Now if Ubisoft decided to sell their rights to the game to whoever(pending of course Whoever has licensed the rights to the XII ip) then GOG would need to ink a new deal with said group/company.

The game won't be removed from those accounts who bought it, but will the forums stay as well? Would hate to see the forums become hidden or something since the game won't be sold anymore.

Well, the Colin McRae forums are still around, if that helps any.
If you were to buy a giftable copy, would that one remain available if you were to then trade it to someone after the year end, even though it is impossible to buy from the site, similar to Steam?

According to a staff post on the version of this thread in General: 'I believe that all gift codes are good for a year. So anything you buy should be redeemed within a year of the purchase. If you're intending to have a XIII giveaway in more than a year, um. Hm. Adjust your plans?' (I can't link to it because of the interim spam filter that blocks any URL posted by someone who hasn't been around long enough to get a decent rep. level.)
Thanks for letting me know. This game was on my wish list. I've just purchased it.
I hope GOG can somehow sort out the problems that users have been having with this game and re-introduce it into the catalogue as it is quite a good game that I've always felt that more people should play.
Has somebody got a gift code for this game they could sell me? It was one of the games I wanted to buy in the sale, but as I waited until the last day...
I am stupid and didn't remember that I already bought this game. Never mind, nothing to see here.
Well good thing I bought it on time, but you guys need to make these messages more obvious, I didn't read it until now, and I didn't catch the Second Sight one on time either and I didn't manage to buy that game : /
@MDyzzle - hi - I just emailed to the support team and mine has been removed :(

Where do I go from here as I now want to play the game.

BTW - the soundtrack was awesome indeed.
*** Update ***

Oops - mine is there - sorry I had a panic attack.

XIII is such a great game so I want to play it again.

Sorry.

What happened? Issues with Ubi? Technical problems with the game? Will it return?
