THQ has not released Warhammer 40K: Space Marine on the Steam in the UK, despite the fact that the game is available on other digital platforms, on Steam in other territories and that the game uses Valve's Steamworks DRM.

Saints Row: The Third, another THQ game, is similarly missing from Steam in the UK.

Rumours suggesting that the absence was the result of UK retailer Game pressuring publishers to not sell their games on Steam have been strongly denied in a statement to Eurogamer.

'We can categorically state that these rumours do not relate to Game Group or any of its employees,' said a Game statement.

THQ has refused to comment on Space Marine's absence from the UK Steam store, as was the case when a Space Marine demo similarly didn't appear on the store last month.
