Developer of controversial game claims Valve founder himself reversed decision

Gabe Newell reportedly puts Hatred back on Steam

Just a day after being yanked from the service, Hatred is back on Steam Greenlight.

Perhaps more surprising however is that the developer of the controversial shooter says that it was Valve boss Gabe Newell himself who sought to overturn its removal.

“Yesterday I heard that we were taking Hatred down from Greenlight,” the apparent email from Newell to Destructive Creations creative director Jaros?aw Zieli?ski said. “Since I wasn’t up to speed, I asked around internally to find out why we had done that.

“It turns out that it wasn’t a good decision, and we’ll be putting Hatred back up. My apologies to you and your team. Steam is about creating tools for content creators and customers. Good luck with your game.”
