No, it was not removed.  It's still there, both in Emacs 27 and on
master.  But we have several different variants of the startup screen,
and what gets actually displayed depends on how you invoke Emacs and
on Emacs's capabilities in the session you started.  So how did you
start Emacs (from the shell prompt, from some icon, from some
service), and what kind of features do you have in that build?

Alternatively, just read the code in startup.el and try to figure out
why you don't have that displayed in your case.  It usually means you
lack some capability, but of course there could be some bug as well.
