Will Russian’s gamers have to give up on the latest games due to Russia’s Invasion in Ukraine?

It was announced in a letter to employees from Activision Blizzard’s president and CEO, Daniel Alegre. “Today, we will be suspending new sales of and in our games in Russia while this conflict is ongoing,” Alegre said. We will keep looking for ways to help the people of Ukraine. You can rest easy because our leadership team is very concerned about making sure that our employees are safe at work. Employees and their families who are directly affected by this tragedy are getting the help they need from us.

“I’d also like to say a big thank you to our colleagues in Poland, where people have given their time to help Ukrainian refugees and other people in need.” We are still working with them to figure out how we can help this even more. Ukraine: “We stand with the Ukrainian people,” said Alegre. “We will keep you updated on any new actions we take as this crisis moves on.”

In a tweet, Epic Games said that it will no longer sell games to Russia because of the invasion of Ukraine. The company did say that it won’t be blocking access to games for Russians, and it said that “the free world should keep all lines of communication open.”
