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.

tl;dr as you wish but I just don't like this guy and his ripoff game so here goes...

This guy saw an opportunity to cash in on the success of the Day Z mod and he took it. Plain and simple. All of this talk of these features is just talk at this point. When this "game" was released in its alpha stages, it had even fewer features than it does at its present stage, which says a lot considering there are still no features at all.

This guy had an idea, modded War Inc., did the whole song and dance of promises and features, and sold us a bill of goods. The game is being put together piece by piece while every sucker (including myself) continues to play a completely unpolished turd. Why just the other day I dropped dead by simply walking. After respawning and trying to recover my gear that I had found, I died while simply walking, in the exact same spot. There are invisible walls everywhere too.

Eventually, we may see all of the features he's been talking about but it won't be anytime soon. This game was a simple cash grab, and it's worked. But now they have to deal with this reputation of hype and broken promises.

I only fear that it isn't too late for Rocket to release the standalone of Day Z. If anyone plays Day Z, it's not exactly as popular as it was a few months ago. Not because of this piece of crap War Z, it's just gotten old.

I hope for Rocket and his guys that they haven't missed the boat while this fraud cashes in. Refunds or not, these guys have banked off of Day Z's success right out from under its nose.

I paid $20 for War Z to get in on the Alpha just to see how awful it would be and I got my moneys worth. I see the patch notes from time to time and just laugh at all of the things that should have already existed. If any major developer did what these guys are doing we would be screaming for their resignation and/or heads.

The only smart thing these guys did was placing the non-disclosure agreement on the alpha phase. If people were allowed to stream/record what it looked like that first couple of weeks, this game would have never seen the light of day. This guy is a joke and a fraud. They copy pasted the EULA from League of Legends for fucks sake.

If people didn't hate the Arma engine/game so much they wouldn't have to be settling for this horrible knockoff. Day Z standalone can't get here soon enough.

On topic I am completely shocked that Steam would have no idea about the outrage towards this title and do absolutely zero fact checking before putting this on their store. This hurts Hammerpoint more than it hurts Steam though. Good on them publicly offering refunds.
