A couple of days ago, the first person tactical shooter game Ready or Not was temporarily removed from the Steam store.
This happened shortly after the developers of VOID Interactive added the Night Club map just to coincide with theThe sixth anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub massacre in Florida, Where fifty people they were killed by the terrorist Omar Mateen.
Some players assumed that this nasty update had caused the removal of the title from Steam, but apparently the real reason would be linked to a copyright infringement, as reported by the developers themselves:
We'd like to address the rumors surrounding the removal of Ready or Not and its associated pages on Steam on Thursday, June 16.
A takedown request has been issued via Steam regarding a suggested copyright infringement in our recent Night Club map which was shared as part of our latest Steam update. We take intellectual property issues very seriously and, in good faith, have decided to remove these materials and any references to them from Ready or Not and any of our social media or other publications.
Ready or Not will return to Steam once the changes are complete. We have also removed the AI update video from our Youtube channel and Steam Store page and expect these will be restored once the editing process is complete.
The game is now available again on Steam, and the developers have just released one of the biggest updates ever made, improving the AI coverage system e adding new weapons.
Ready or Not è currently available in early access since last December. The original plan was to release it in full form by the end of this year, although it is currently unclear whether this will be achieved.Source: Steam
