Ready or Not Delisted on Steam

Ready or Not is no longer ready, as the game's Steam page is currently unavailable. A tweet from developer VOID Interactive and a post on Steam acknowledge the removal, but express ignorance about what happened: "There is an issue somewhere with Steams [sic] Backend and it's resulted in the game being taken off the store for some reason, but Ready or Not is still on the platform." This may not be as mysterious as that, however, as NME reports the removal came after the game added a level involving a mass shooting at a nightclub called Prysm. This recalls the news from last December when Team17 announced it was no longer publishing the game shortly after the developer said it was planning a school shooting level. Here's word on how the new Prysm update came on the sixth anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting:
Prysm takes place in the aftermath of a terrorist attack at a nightclub, and depicts the scene of a mass shooting, with piles of bodies strewn across the map. The level bears some resemblance to the 2015 Bataclan shooting in Paris, as well as the 2016 shooting at Pulse nightclub. Questionably, the map was added on June 12 – the anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting.

While no connection has been confirmed, Valve has removed games depicting similar scenes in the past – in 2018, Valve de-platformed a game called Active Shooter after complaints from campaigns from parents of school shooting victims.

Maybe they should have just gone the No Russian route. Valve would probably have not batted an eye.
