Hatred greenlit after all

Hatred greenlit after all

After a lot of controversy, Hatred ended up being approved by valve through the greenlight system. The game, an isometric shoot that lets you play as a mad gunman hunting innocent civilians kicked up a lot of dust when it first appeared on greenlight, and even more when it was subsequently removed with nothing more than following statement from a valve representative;

“Based on what we’ve seen on Greenlight we would not publish Hatred on Steam. As such we’ll be taking it down.”

No good reason was given for the removal, as the terms of the greenlight process weren’t breached, and similar games like manhunt and postal have been for sale through steam without issues, which caused an uproar from the community eventually forcing Gabe Newell (Ceo of Valve, the company behind Steam) himself to intervene and reverse the previously made decision. After being reinstated, Hatred quickly became the highest ranked game on greenlight, amassing 105,496 yes votes and 166,609 unique visits in 14 days. To find out whether or not developers Destructive Creations will make good on the hype we’ll have to wait until the release which is scheduled for the second quarter of 2015.
