Steam Stops Selling The War Z

Kotaku has word that The War Z is no longer sold on Steam just days after the zombie survival game was added to some outcry (thanks nin). They have a statement from the game's developer: "We're making sure that our Store page is 100% correct this is why," Sergey Titov tells them. "Bottom line – our end goal is to have satisfied and not angry customers, so this is more important for us than everything else." Here is the explanation they received from Valve:

From time to time a mistake can be made and one was made by prematurely issuing a copy of War Z for sale via Steam. We apologize for this and have temporary removed the sale offering of the title until we have time to work with the developer and have confidence in a new build. Those who purchase the game and wish to continue playing it via Steam may do so. Those who purchased the title via Steam and are unhappy with what they received may seek a refund by creating a ticket at our support site here.

Thanks for the history JacobV and Major D (That sounds like a kick-ass name for a hip-hop group!). It certainly stands to reason that someone who would claim that people who are upset that 100km2 maps are actually around 50km2 and 100-player servers max out at 50 players are "misreading" has definite problems with honesty, so I admit it's pretty hard to lend any credence to his claim.

They go up to 100. I have been on servers with 90+. You dont' want that many, to many people looking to killl you. I have had more fun on servers with less than 20...

Fair enough. At the time he made the video at least, Total Biscuit verified that the max server number was 50. More concerning to me, however, was the answer that Titov gave in response to the questions about why the store page did not reflect the current realities of the game in the interviews was... "strange" I guess is the right word.

At any rate, if I was to play the game at some point (or its "inspiration" DayZ) I'd prefer to play on a server with a max population of one. I don't like playing games with people, especially considering how as soon as you have they something they don't they'll just kill you and take it.
