The War Z Creator Apologizes Over Controversies

Recent controversies over The War Z caused the game to get pulled from Steam, but now the game's creator is apologizing.

The War Z was criticized for having misleading Steam descriptions and poor community management, but in a detailed letter to his fans, War Z Executive Producer Sergey Titov apologized for his role in these missteps. A section of the letter reads as follows:

“I need to admit that we failed to effectively communicate some of our plans and actions to both our existing players and to our new prospective players. This failure to communicate resulted in some very negative feedback from some members of our community, but while it might be easy to label them as “haters” or some other dismissive term, in all honesty this is my fault. I became arrogant and blinded by the early success and quick growth of The War Z, our increasing number of players, numbers we were getting from surveys, etc., and I chose not to notice the concerns and questions raised by these members of the game community as well as others. This failure is entirely on my shoulders and if anything I owe thanks to that vocal minority and admit that I should have paid attention sooner.”

Titov also goes into detail about what fans can expect moving forward. You can check out the rest of the letter in The War Z Forums
