All of Digital Homicide's games have been removed from Steam after attempting to sue over 100 Steam users for $18 million and subpoenaing Valve for their personal information. This comes after the Romaine Brothers, the development team of Digital Homicide, sued YouTuber Jim Sterling for $10 million for alleged damages to the companies reputation.

Now all of Digital Homicide's games have been removed from the Steam platform, though existing owners of the games can still download and play these their titles if they wish. Below is a Statement from Valve which confirms that their games are indeed removed from the Steam Store, stating that Digital Homicide has been hostile to the Steam userbase. 

 

Valve has stopped doing business with Digital Homicide for being hostile to Steam customers.

One thing worth noting here is that after Steam's recent changes in review policy, scores from many of Digital Homicide's games have plummeted, with the company allegedly giving away Steam keys in exchange for positive review scores. 

None of Digital Homicide's games has been received with positivity by the majority of gamers, making the removal of Digital Homicide from Steam of little consequence to PC gamers.

Wow have you seen their response to this?

First i'd like to briefly respond to Doug Lombardi's official statement about Digital Homicide and its owners. I'd like to give some context to his offficial statement "Valve has stopped doing business with Digital Homicide for being hostile to Steam customers." What has actually transpired was a lack of resolution from Steam in regards to moderation of their platform which might sound like a tough job to do, but coming from a company that brags its profitability per employee is higher than google, it just shows a reckless disregard for for the well being of their community for profits. We submitted numerous reports and sent multiple emails in regards to individuals making personal attacks, harassment, and more on not only us but on other Steam customers who were actually interested in our products. The lawsuit that was submitted in regards to a handful of Steam users has been labeled by the media and now by Doug Lombardi's(a Valve representative) statement as "being hostile to Steam users" in general which is incorrect. The lawsuit recently filed is solely in regards to individuals where no resolution was able to be obtained from Steam to provide a safe environment for us to conduct business. By removing us for defending ourselves against harassment Steam is openly stating you cannot defend yourself from examples like these: (see link here for screenshots)

When someone bothers you on say a platform like Facebook and you find the need to ban them, the Facebook response after you ban is "Sorry you had this experience" and then that person is removed from being able to post on your page. Steam's stance is what just happened to us. By removing us they have taken the stance that users have the right to harass me, tell me I should kill myself, and insult my family . If I try to defend myself against said actions then I lose my family's income. If it wasn't for 2 years of experience of dealing with Steam on a regular basis, this disgusting stance would seem shocking to me. The only thing that prevented me seeking legal counsel for a long list of breach of contracts, interference with business, and anti-trust issues was the fear of losing my family's income. Since that has been taken away I am seeking legal representation. The case will benefit from a long list of organized documentation of events that have happened over the past 2 years including dates, screenshots, emails, and more on over 100 infractions in need of litigation. Legal counsel interested in our case can contact us at (removed)

Yeah it is in one word, pathetic.

these guys don't take a hint, bad games, bad pr, youtube takedowns on criticism and their general conduct has been stupid. as amusing as it is to see them try to take on valve, it would be the biggest waste of time and money, and now that he claims to have no income, how the hell is he gonna pay for the mountain of lawyers and court time?

Can't wait for the next Jimquisition about this though.Quote
