By its nature, the tactical FPS Ready or Not is always liable to fall into controversy. In case you didn’t know, in a title where players charge a member of a SWAT team and deal with hostile situations like hostage taking, etc. Now he’s making headlines again for all the wrong reasons.
As explained by the portal NME, the VOID Interactive video game has ceased to appear on Valve’s digital store since June 16. The study responsible for the project acknowledged this phenomenon on Twitter and explained that it was already investigating what happened, although it did not reveal more details about it.
As you may have noticed, Ready or Not is temporarily MIA from the Steam Store page.

Thanks to a publication in the community section of Ready or Not On Steam, a member of VOID Interactive assured that an alleged problem with the Backend was the reason for the removal of the title from the store, although he assured that it is still on the platform. Finally, he promised that he will let the community know when the situation is resolved.
It should be noted that while the game is currently unpurchasable, players who already have it in their library can still download, install, and play the game.

Why did Ready or Not disappear from Steam?
Although the studio employee claimed that it was all the result of an error with the app, some fans are speculating that there is another reason behind the title’s disappearance.
On June 12, Ready or Not has been updated and added a new mission that takes place in a mass shooting that happened inside a nightclub.
As if that weren’t enough to raise a few eyebrows, it’s worth noting that the video game level debuted on the anniversary of the 2016 mass shooting that killed 49 people and injured 53. others at Pulse, an LGBTQIA+ themed nightclub located in Orlando, Florida.

Thus, some people began to theorize that due to the supposed similarity between the mission of Ready or Not and the real-life incident, Steam made the decision to remove the game from the store. This is all pure speculation, of course, but it wouldn’t be the first time Valve has removed games from its platform due to their kinship with real-life tragedies.
