Publisher cites Steam's insistence to make 'guideline related changes' to game for release
Video game publisher Spike Chunsoft has released a statement to press announcing that its long-planned release of Chaos;Head Noah on Steam has been canceled due to the insistence of the platform on 'guideline related changes' being made to the game that the publisher felt would compromise the game itself. Because of this, Spike Chunsoft is exploring the possibility of releasing the PC version of the game on alternative storefronts. The full statement is below:
Spike Chunsoft, Inc. today regrets to announce that it will not be able to release CHAOS;HEAD NOAH on Steam as originally planned due to Steam's guideline-required changes to the game's content. Spike Chunsoft, Inc. believes these changes would not allow the game to be released to its standards.
The company extends its sincerest apologies to all of the fans looking forward to this release.
The company is looking into delivering the title through alternative storefronts, and when details are decided will make another formal announcement. Until then the company appreciates your patience and understanding.
Please also rest assured the Nintendo Switch version is not affected and will release on October 7, 2022, as scheduled.
