I dont know why the removed this game from the store, but they did a big mistake. This game is enough big star to remain on Steam forever. A classic without having pair.

They almost always never do. This game has been removed from a lot of digital retailers however, not simply Steam alone.

I'm thinking a critical performance issue with current OSes might be to blame and the obvious solution was total removal of future purchases vs. putting anyone to work/diverting manpower on bugfixing a game that's eleven years old.

Yeahhhh....no.
That doesn't make any sense, if that ever happened the obvious solution for them would have been not to do anything.
The game is officially only supported on Windows 98, ME and XP, so they probably wouldn't care if the game didn't work on any other version of Windows and simply keep selling the game anyway.

My guess regarding this is that there was some kind of licensing issue (regarding the music for example, maybe?) because some contract expired and they were forced to remove the game from the store.
These petitions are pointless, they clearly didn't remove the game on a whim.

Does anyone have any new information?

No. As I said previously, a contract probably expired and 2K evaluated the costs of renewing it versus the revenues gathered from the game and decided it wasn't worth it, end of story.
All I can say is that a petition signed by 132 persons definitely won't change their minds.

However, there could be a possibility of the game coming back as a pre-order incentive for Mafia 3 I guess, but it's a long shot.

.....2K sucks!

Such a shame, Mafia is one of my all time favourite games - definitely in my top 5 (wasn't a huge fan of Mafia 2). Still have the same retail copy since release back in the day, but it'd just be plain easier to also have a steam copy too. Wish I'd bought this when I had the chance now.
