Russian-Made "Active Shooter" Game Gets Canceled

Russian-Made

Ata is a troll, with a history of customer abuse, publishing copyrighted material, and user review manipulation. Berdiyev, meanwhile, was previously booted from Valve' platform after releasing a game called Piccled Ricc based on an episode of Cartoon Network's "Rick and Morty".

The game, set to be released next month, lets players choose between taking the role of a SWAT Team member trying to stop an ongoing school shooting, or the role of the shooter themselves. Ryan Petty, whose daughter Alaina was killed in the February mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, urged his followers to speak out against the game, calling it "despicable" and "unacceptable". The simulation racks up points by the number of civilians and police that are shot and killed.

Valve discovered the man was the developer behind "Active Shooter" when they began investigating amid controversy surrounding the upcoming game, Lombardi said.

Valve Corporation pulled "Active Shooter" from the Steam Entertainment platform hours after a petition demanding it be removed topped almost 200,000 signatures. But Valve is a big well-known gaming company, and had been the target of much of the criticism against the game. "Ninety-nine percent of the people who play this game are going to have no intention of saying, 'I want to go and shoot up a school.' (That's) 99.999 percent".

The next feature update for Xbox One is available for everyone now
Murray did not give any sort of player cap or limit on how many people you can squad up with. Also new with the update is the ability to trim Game Capture videos from within the Guide.

Valve Corporation is a video game development company. "We can't expect those people to be the only ones who stand up against things like this". If made by a more reputable developer, was Active Shooter something you would have considered purchasing?

"The broader conversation about Steam's content policies is one that we'll be addressing soon", the Valve statement said.

The BBC reported that Valve reached out to the media to reveal that the June release of the controversial video game would be stopped. Valve also banned the developer Revived Games and publisher Acid from its popular digital distribution platform, which are actually one and the same in Ata Berdiyev, who Valve described as a "troll" with an unsavory history towards its customers. In GTA V, for example, a player can pay a prostitute to have sex, then beat her to death and take back the money.

It was published by the company Acid.
