Cross-posted from Steam:

Well, I have bad news. Metacritic is refusing to pull the review. They have the aforementioned long-standing policy that somebody pasted in earlier that flat out refuses to pull a review, even in the case of a mistake. When we publish our updated review it'll reflect the appropriate score, but Metacritic will continue to punish Larian. I've reached out to Metacritic, but I sincerely doubt that it'll change anything.

I accept full responsibility for this and have already reached out to the team with my apologies. We will do whatever we can to make it right on our end, and we will tighten up our safeguards to prevent this from happening in the future.

Thanks to the folks who recognize that we are trying to do the right thing.
