The Sinking City Devs Warn Fans Not To Buy The Game On Steam
Following its 2019 release, The Sinking City has been the center of some legal disputes between developer Frogwares and publisher Nacon. This resulted in the game being removed from several digital storefronts. That said, the latest development has led to the developers warning fans that they should not buy the version of the game that is currently on Steam.
After a preliminary hearing that found Frogwares to have terminated their contract with Nacon “in a ‘manifestly unlawful’ manner,” things have only gotten worse. This is what brought The Sinking City back to Steam, but it was quickly removed once again. However, a new version has popped back up on the Steam store, but Frogwares has warned fans that they should not purchase it as they were not the ones who created it.

According to the reviews that are currently on the Steam page, this version of The Sinking City is an older build that does not contain some of the newer features that have been implemented since release. Things such as cloud saves, DLC, and achievements are not part of this version. Needless to say, this is a sticky situation with seemingly no end in sight.
The Sinking City is currently available on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
