The game which was sold through Steam for a while was removed not long ago, mainly because its description was misleading and the game in major parts was unfinished. It went as far as to the point that Steam was giving customers back their money as well as removing War Z from the software’s gaming list.
War Z Executive Producer Sergey Titov said the following about the controversy:
“I need to admit that we failed to effectively communicate some of our plans and actions to both our existing players and to our new prospective players. This failure to communicate resulted in some very negative feedback from some members of our community, but while it might be easy to label them as “haters” or some other dismissive term, in all honesty this is my fault. I became arrogant and blinded by the early success and quick growth of The War Z, our increasing number of players, numbers we were getting from surveys, etc., and I chose not to notice the concerns and questions raised by these members of the game community as well as others. This failure is entirely on my shoulders and if anything I owe thanks to that vocal minority and admit that I should have paid attention sooner.”
