Rocky Font missing

I had been using the Adobe font "Rocky" in a publication I've been designing for a year. Suddenly it doesn't show up in Adobe fonts anymore, and I cannot find it anywhere online. What's going on? I hate to find a replacement when we've worked hard at keeping the publication consistent.

 

When I open the file, it says it's looking for Rocky, but when I click "activate", nothing happens, and the font is missing from Adobe Fonts when I go to look for it.

Adobe announced recently that a couple foundries are no longer including their fonts in Adobe Fonts:

 

https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-fonts/foundries-leaving-adobe-fonts/m-p/11110604?page=1#M2137

 

That appears to include fonts from Carter & Cone, which includes Rocky:

You can license the font from the Type Network website.

Yep, https://fonts.adobe.com/ doesn't contain your font. Please ask support why they kill this font and return to us their answer.

It's one thing to consider when choosing fonts from a subscription service.

Adobe and any other font vendor can change the subscription whenever they want.

 

I don't know the details about why those foundaries were discontinued, but from my experience, it's usually because the negotiations about financial and rights broke down at some point. Or the Carter & Cone foundary weren't satisfied with their deal with Adobe. Or they assumed they could make more money by selling the font themselves.

 

The days of having unlimited use of free fonts are numbered!

Thank you very much, this answers my question. It makes sense. Negotiations are always going on in business, so I'm not surprised that companies come and go. I'll find a suitable substitute for those files.
