Controversial twin-stick shooter Hatred will launch for PC on June 1, Destructive Creations has announced.

“Since the very beginning, when Hatred was first announced, there were many doubts and questions rising about the title, including those whether or not developers will manage to actually release the game,” said the studio.

“Today Destructive Creations proudly say: we are ready!

“Soon all questions will be replaced with answers and you will find out that it was worth to wait. Get ready to test your shooting, tactical and destruction skills,” it added.

“Initially we were planning to announce the release date for Hatred on May 19, but… well honestly speaking we will be playing The Witcher 3 then.”

Early this year it was revealed that Hatred would be the second game ever to be rated AO by the Entertainment Software Rating Board.

Valve initially pulled the game from Steam Greenlight, but it was quickly reinstated by Valve CEO Gabe Newell.

“It turns out that it wasn’t a good decision, and we’ll be putting Hatred back up,” he said.
