Why state that the title will no longer be accessible via the September 1 what if it is no longer for sale?

In all honesty, we can imagine that this means it’s no longer available to download from that date (for those who’ve already bought it) – which is already problematic.

If confirmed it would be a first and of course it would set a precedent and not play in favor of the digital market…
