Following its launch within the spring of 2019, Devotion was discovered to comprise an unflattering reference to China’s president, Xi Jinping. The invention sparked an outcry amongst Chinese language gamers, resulting in the withdrawal of Chinese language distributors, the closure of Pink Candle’s account on Weibo, one in every of China’s largest social media platforms, and the elimination of the sport from Steam in China.

Pink Candle apologised at size for what it mentioned was a placeholder asset, unintentionally transferred to the ultimate launch. These feedback weren’t sufficient to stem the backlash, nevertheless, and every week after sale, the developer pulled the sport from Steam in all territories to carry out unspecified fixes. It by no means returned.

In December 2020, Cyberpunk 2077 firm CD Projekt got here beneath fireplace for reversing its choice to launch horror sport Devotion on digital store GOG.com.
