Controversial shooter Hatred has been removed and then re-added into Steam Greenlight all within the last 24 hours and Gabe Newell has written an apology letter to Destructive Creations.
Gabe Newell said that he "wasn't up to speed" on what was happening and realised that it wasn't a "good decision" to remove the game from Steam Greenlight. The letter of apology that he wrote was posted on Destructive Creations’ Facebook page
Yesterday I heard that we were taking Hatred down from Greenlight. Since I wasn’t up to speed, I asked around internally to find out why we had done that. It turns out that it wasn’t a good decision, and we’ll be putting Hatred back up. My apologies to you and your team. Steam is about creating tools for content creators and customers.
Good luck with your game.
Ever since the first trailer for Hatred appeared there has been a lot of controversy surrounding the shooter for its "meaningless" killing of innocent people. Since then the game was added to the Steam Greenlight service to try and put the game on Steam and then well, you know the rest.
