I wonder if they intended to release it in it's current state and patch it later... like most games do now. That might be a reason to pull control from Steam so that they can finish the game without the hassle of dealing with Steams QA for patches. Makes sense when you look at how bad some of these games are when they get released... and then pulled like Dead Island...
