Devotion Pulled from Steam Following Winnie-the-Pooh Controversy

Red Candle Games’ recently released horror game Devotion has been pulled from Steam following controversy.

Reportedly, players discovered disparaging remarks about Xi Jinping, the president of China. Red Candle Games responded to the drama, and called the inclusion of a poster that mocked China’s president “purely an accident” apologizing for including that artwork that translated to “Xi Jinping Winnie-the-Pooh moron.”

Steam responded by issuing an official statement regarding the game:

“the whole team of Red Candle Games bears the responsibility of this awfully unprofessional mistake. It is not Red Candle’s vision to secretly project extensive ideology, nor is it to attack any person in the real world.”

Red Candle issued a statement posted to Steam, announcing the pulling of the game to conduct a review of the content.

“Due to technical issues that cause unexpected crashes and among other reasons, we are pulling Devotion off from steam store to have another complete QA check. At the same time we’d like to take this opportunity to ease the heightened pressure in our community resulted from our previous Art Material Incident, our team would also review our game material once again making sure no other unintended materials was inserted in. Hopefully this would help all audience to focus on the game itself again upon its return. “
