Game: Automobilista Motorsports Simulator

Platform: PC

Publisher: Reiza Studios

Release Date: 24/08/2015

In a surprise twist, the Steam store page for Automobilista Motorsports Simulator has been taken down due to a copyright infringement claim submitted to Valve.

Automobilista combines officially licensed cars & brands alongside fictional content created by Reiza Studios. The claim filed doesn't actually go into any specific infringement according to Reiza, and as such the development team believe the claim is false and has no merit.

Reiza Studios have commented on the situation:

We have already taken the appropriate measures to resolve the issue ASAP, but in accordance to Valve´s policy, the process may take a few days to be completed.

In the meantime time we will continue to progress with the development of Automobilista, and intend to release another Early Access update shortly. The game is available for purchase as part of our Membership packages from our forum store.

Reiza Studios have stated that they cannot comment on the subject until it's been fully resolved.
