Classic games The Lion King (1994) and Disney's Aladdin (1993) have been delisted from Steam without so much as a word. 

Thankfully GOG.com have given a short warning of just over 24 hours in this forum post announcement :

We'd like to inform you that Disney The Lion King and Disney Aladdin are being delisted from our catalog on July 9th, 2PM UTC, due to the publisher's request. Everyone who owned the games prior to delisting will still be able to access them through their GOG Library.

Another Disney game, The Jungle Book, has been delisted from Steam but still available from GOG.com - who knows if more Disney games will be delisted in the future?

I don't understand why this would happen, they have their own licenses so that wouldn't be an issue. So sad though that games can be lost like that, but being that it was on GOG, we definitely have GOG copies floating around somewhere.

      After some past requests we have implemented ProtonDB links in all relevant PCGamingWiki articles.
      The new link now appears in the form of a ProtonDB icon in the bottom of the infobox where other partner links are placed. This is automatically added when a Steam App ID is added to any game article.
      Proton is a tool released by Valve Software that has been integrated with Steam Play to make playing Windows games on Linux easier to achieve. ProtonDB gather reports from other gamers as they test games with Proton on Linux and provide aggregate scores of how well games perform. 
      Hopefully this link will encourage more reports to be submitted to ProtonDB to help Linux gamers get their games working. I have also spoken to buck, the developer for the site, who is looking into mutual linking from ProtonDB pages back to PCGamingWiki in the future.

      Steam stats show that the number of concurrent logged in users has now exceeded 20 million. The all time highest number for Steam at the time of writing is now 20.3 million users which ocurred on Sunday March 15th, 2020.
      This comes as no surprise as lockdowns continue to be announced worldwide with more and more people staying at home due to Covid-19. Not only this, but the Steam userbase continues to grow, and certain Steam games like CS:GO also achieved its all-time concurrent player peak of over 1 million this Sunday.
