It was... an inevitability.

Late last year, Valve took the extraordinary step of removing The War Z from sale on Steam, as the game came under attack for continued, shall we say… exaggerations about its features and state of completion. Valve then took the further step of offering refunds to users who felt they had been deceived by these exaggerations. Now, for those deceived players, the honeymoon is over.
Steam’s news feed announced that “Valve and Hammerpoint Interactive collaborated to address community feedback, update the Steam store page, and make the title available for purchase worldwide. In addition, a patch has been released to update existing customers.”
“As such, the special refund offering extended for The War Z Steam customers who previously purchased the title has concluded.”
