Valve Pulls 'Active Shooter' Game Set in School After Outcry

Valve has removed "Active Shooter" from Steam, claiming that the game's developer is a known internet troll.

"This developer and publisher is, in fact, a person calling himself Ata Berdiyev, who had previously been removed last fall when he was operating as '[bc]Interactive' and 'Elusive Team,'" Valve told PCMag in an email.

"Ata is a troll, with a history of customer abuse, publishing copyrighted material, and user review manipulation. His subsequent return under new business names was a fact that came to light as we investigated the controversy around his upcoming title," the company said.

Both Acid and Revived Games, the publisher and developer for Active Shooter, have also been removed from the platform.
