Both mods have also stated to their community that it's a temporary disruption, and that it's nothing to be worried about. Members of both teams have posted to Discord servers to allay the fears of fans.

It's now being speculated that both mods are getting a dedicated Steam page, similar to what happened in the past with popular projects like Black Mesa.

Either way it's unlikely to be a real takedown from Valve. Valve is historically one of the friendliest companies to modders and the modding community at large, both supporting and hiring modders.
