Steam Removes Game Over Code Theft Allegations

A tweet from Myth Of Empires explains that Chinese strategy game Myth of Legends has been delisted from Steam after allegations from Studio Wildcard and Snail Games that the game uses source code stolen from Ark: Survival Evolved. PC Gamer has details from the takedown complaint, which explains: "Key employees of the developer of Myth of Empires worked at the Chinese parent of Snail Games USA Inc and at least one of them had the credentials that enabled them to access the Ark: Survival Evolved source code." In its tweet, the team behind the game asks that no one be harassed over this, and says it has faith the game will return:
Yesterday, after we informed you of the reason why myth of empires has been temporarily removed from the steam platform and other related developments, rumors began to circulate among our communities about the identity of the company that filed the complaint to steam. We need to affirm that these rumors are inconsistent with the parties actually involved in the delisting of myth of empires, but out of respect for the legal process, we are temporarily unable to disclose more details. We hope that players will take a sensible stance on the issue and cease the excessive behaviours against rumoured parties. Though we are frustrated with this situation as well, we still have faith that we will be able to resolve this situation in a timely manner and make the game available to everyone again.
