Destructive Creations' highly controversial shooter Hatred, in which you play a gunman who massacres civilians and police personnel, hityesterday.
That didn't last very long, however. Valve swiftly pulled the game from their service, and the developers have released their own statement in response.
"Based on what we've seen on Greenlight we would not publish Hatred on Steam," Valve's Doug Lombardi wrote in an email. "As such we'll be taking it down."
Destructive Creations are not too happy with this decision, but say they respect Valve's right to make it. Epic Games, who provided the Unreal Engine that powers the title, asked for their logo to be removed from the game, so it's not as if Destructive Creations are unused to big company disapproval.
“Even though games like Manhunt or Postal are still available on Steam we of course fully respect Valve's decision, as they have the right to do so,” reads an open letter from the studio. “In the same time we want to assure you that this won't in any way impact the game's development, game's vision or gameplay features we're aiming for. The game is still to be released in Q2 2015 as planned.”
