Ready or Not pulled from Steam after adding nightclub shooting level


Shooter temporarily delisted days after new stage was added on the anniversary of Pulse nightclub shooting

Tactical shooter title Ready or Not has been temporarily delisted from Steam, a week after it added a stage featuring a mass shooting at a night club.

As reported by NME, the level was added on June 12, the anniversary of the 2016 mass shooting targeting LGBTQ+ attendees at the Pulse night club in Orlando, Florida.

In a Twitter post, Ready or Not developer Void Interactive acknowledged the game was delisted but did not explain why, and said it will provide an update soon.

NME went on to add that although the reason for the shooter being delisted is unknown, Valve has removed games in the past for depicting violent real world events.

This isn’t the first time that Void Interactive has found itself in the news regarding content within Ready or Not.

In December 2021, the developer stopped working with publisher Team17.

It did not say why the company’s agreed to part ways, but the split happened days after the developer said a future mission would depict a school shooting situation.

Valve did not immediately respond to with regards to whether Ready or Not was pulled due to the nightclub content.
