Ready or Not available on Steam again

Ready or Not is available again on Steam: as promised, the game development team has resolved the copyright issues that led to Valve's temporary removal from the digital platform.

As reported, a couple of days ago Ready or Not has disappeared from Steam and it was thought that the issue had somehow to do with the new Night Club scenario, evidently inspired by the venue of the Orlando massacre of 2016.

However, it seems that the accusation of copyright infringement had nothing to do with that story or that nightclub, but with an English chain that would have a name similar to the one used for the new game map.

In their message to users, the developers they had said to take this type of situation into great consideration and that therefore they would have promptly removed the controversial materials in order to solve the problem.

Ready or Not is therefore again present in the Steam catalog in early access, and it is possible to buy it at a price of € 35.99.

Ready Or Not Developers Release Statement Following Steam Removal

Ready or Not was promptly removed from Steam on Thursday, June 16th, a matter of days after the launch of a new content update featuring new maps and a huge overhaul to the game’s AI.

Many fans speculated that the first-person shooter was removed from Steam due to one of the new maps, which depicted a mass shooting inside of a nightclub. The new map was released on the six-year anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting, where 49 people tragically lost their lives in a nightclub in Orlanda, Florida.

However, Void Interactive, the developers of Ready or Not, have released a statement explaining why their title was removed from Steam and how they would be rectifying the issue.

    According to Void Interactive, Ready or Not received a takedown request due to a trademark infringement in the new game’s new nightclub map. The developers said that they “take IP concerns very seriously, and in a show of good faith, [they] have decided to remove the subject materials and any reference to them from Ready or Not and from any of our social media or other publications”.

    Void went on to state that a new update video would soon be re-uploaded to their YouTube channel once certain assets were edited out. But, exactly what caused the trademark infringement is currently unconfirmed.

    Many fans speculate that the name of the featured nightclub in Ready or Not was similar to one of the same name in the United Kingdom, but this has not been confirmed by Void Interactive.

    As of June 18th at 7AM ET, Ready or Not is once again available for purchase on Steam. Fans can find the full statement from Void Interactive in the tweet below.
