Survival strategy MMO Myth of Empires is delisted on Steam over copyright infringement allegations

According to a document, a former Snail Games China employee who founded Angela Game in 2020 had access to ARK’s source code, and when Myth of Empires was released in November 2021, Studio Wildcard found “hundreds of matching class, variable, and function names in a preliminary analysis,” leading to a “good faith belief that Myth of Empires was built by: (1) stealing the ARK: Survival Evolved source code and (2) using the stolen source code as the gameplay foundation for Myth of Empires.”

Regarding the rumours of involved parties in the delisting incident, please read this announcement.
