This is not surprising...making a game about a subject matter which has killed over 5mil people worldwide is in bad taste.....regardless if it's theme is to eradicate it. Something like this is just 'too soon', at least not while we are still neck deep in the damn thing
Few read blues comments much less the comments posted here. The steam game was released in 2018 well before the "too soon" covid pandemic.
I think we as customers are due more explanation than the boilerplate bullshit we got "
At the request of the publisher, Pandemic: The Board Game is no longer available for sale on Steam."
It looks like the only mention of pandemic in the news on this site was when it hit Xbox game pass in July of 2019.
