It’s a sad day for the developer of Blade Runner 9732, Quentin Lengele. It’s been reported on the game’s Steam store page that the game will be removed from Steam, following removal from Viveport yesterday, due to a copyright complaint. The developer expects removal within the next 24 hours, so it seems that Valve’s decision is final, at least for now.
This F2P, fan-made, indie cyberpunk title supports HTC Vive, and the developer states that he hopes to resolve this soon as he asserts permission for release had been granted by Warner Brothers. The developer states that he has a “clear agreement of principle from Warner Bros L.A. Digital Department since Nov 2017.” It’s also been noted noted that this particular complaint had not come from Warner Brothers, and the developer stated that he was “disappointed” with this type of behavior. It’s unclear where the complaint is coming from at this time, but for now at least, removal from the Steam store is expected.
If you’re quick, you can still add the game to your library and install the game by visiting the store page on Steam.
