Bally and Williams Tables Being Pulled from Pinball Arcade Library

A bit of sad news from Pinball Arcade: the developers are being forced to remove over 60 titles from their library after WMS Industries, who currently hold the trademarks to both the Bally and Williams pinball games, informed them they would not allow the video game to use their titles any longer. The news came down on the game's official Facebook page yesterday.

Bally and Williams Tables Being Pulled from Pinball Arcade Library

Our longstanding licenses for the Williams and Bally pinball trademarks will finally come to an end on June 30th, 2018. Therefore, after this date tables from these manufacturers will no longer be offered for sale within the Pinball Arcade. However, customers who purchased any of these tables prior to the deadline will continue to own them and have access to them within the Pinball Arcade, and we will continue to support them as we do the other tables in our collection. This change will affect all of our devices and platforms.

As mentioned above, you have about seven weeks to download any of the games you want from their library before they go away. The game is totally free to download, but the individual games themselves are per-purchase if you wish to own them. Below is the complete list of what will be vanishing at the end of next month, in case you see any favorites you may wish to add.
