Hatred Trailer: Too Destructive for Steam Greenlight
Destructive Creations' upcoming shooter, Hatred, seems to be the video game that everybody approaches with disdain, even Steam.
Hatred has been criticized since its announcement. Even the original trailer actually ended up being taken down and replaced. The game seems to follow the actions of a guy with a suicide-bomber mindset as he tries to kill everyone in sight. Destructive Creations put together a teaser trailer for its release on Steam Greenlight today, pulling together the most gruesome scenes from its announcement trailer.
However, Steam decided it didn't want anything to do with the game and removed it from the storefront a few hours later. Steam's explanation to the developers was as follows: "We wanted you guys to know that based on what we see on Greenlight we would not publish Hatred on Steam. As such we’ll be taking it down." Despite this, Destructive Creations put out a statement assuring its fans that this will not affect the release of the game which is still set for Q2 in 2015. It also wanted to thank the community behind it because, despite Steam removing it after only a couple hours, the game managed to reach #7 on the top 100 list and had 13,148 up votes.
Despite the adversity from critics and Steam alike, Destructive Creations will be moving forward with Hatred, which you can expect on PC sometime in 2015. One wonders if the game will ever be more than the hype that surrounds it.
