We covered a few days ago how Devotion was bombarded with negative reviews due to the mockery made of the Chinese President Xi Jinping. Although they did make an apology on Steam the upset Chinese fans were unforgiving. We also said that it may become an issue for Red Candle Games and as it turned out it did become a problem. However, the developer claims that Devotion was removed due to technical issues.
The developers took to Steam several hours later.
Red Candle Games stated the following on Steam:
They further stated:
We haven’t heard of any technical issues judging of the reviews made on Steam, but we can’t say that for sure because we haven’t tried the game. Also, judging off the reviews, the game was quite adored, but the only downfall was the insult to the Chinese President.
For now, we don’t know when the game is going to make its comeback but looking at the state of the situation we are not sure if the game will even be re-released. Nonetheless, Red Candle Games do assure their fans that the game will be back.
