Valve Apologizes as Hatred Greenlight Campaign Returns

The Steam Greenlight campaign for Hatred has returned, not long after it was ended by Valve, who said at the time: "Based on what we've seen on Greenlight we would not publish Hatred on Steam. As such we'll be taking it down." Polish developer Destructive Creations' announcement of this isometric shooter admitted its themes are "disturbing," and this sparked controversy from the start. The Hatred Steam Community forums are filled with posts about the game's prospects being of being published, many expressing outrage that it exists, and many other expressing outrage at attempts to get it quashed. According to Destructive Creations, they received the following apologetic explanation from Valve's Gabe Newell:
Hi, Jaroslaw.

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.
