Earlier this week, Valve removed a game named Orion from their gaming platform Steam under allegation of using stolen gun assets of Activision’s Black Ops 3.

Initially developer of the game, David Prassel protested for the take down, but later on in a statement he has confirmed that the questioned graphical entities were removed and the game has currently returned on Steam.

He later on went on to explain that he has not designed the weapons and can't cross-check freelancers' work with every other game: "I don't get to play other games, I am working on this full time,"

Interestingly this is not the first time his company has come under fire due to similar allegations - art from armor from Natural Selection 2, artwork from Primal Carnage, another dinosaur shooter, audio from Counter-Strike, achievement images. David however has taken full responsibility for all those incidents.

"This is my image design, of which I used Google images for things we were referencing, such as Turok," he said. "I understand looking back this was wrong, and once it was brought up to us it was immediately removed."
