Ubisoft and Take-Two Interactive are also preventing game sales in Russia

Ubisoft and Take-Two Interactive have suspended game sales in Russia as a result of the country’s invasion of Ukraine, joining a growing number of companies who have decided to cut links with the country as a result of the invasion.

Using an updated blog post, Ubisoft announced that it had decided to halt sales in Russia due to the “ongoing tragedy in Ukraine.” However, although the blog post itself does not go into depth about the prohibition, various reports have indicated that it applies to both physical and digital game sales.

Take-Two has also chosen to temporarily halt the sale and installation of new games in Russia and Belarus for the time being. All of Take-companies, Two’s including 2K Games, and Rockstar, the developer of the Grand Theft Auto series, are subject to the ban.

Earlier this week, EA Games announced that it will eliminate Russian and Belarusian teams from its FIFA and NHL games and that it would later suspend all sales of its games and virtual currency. On Friday, Activision Blizzard also banned new sales “of and in” their games, and Epic Games followed suit the next day, bringing the total number of new purchases to zero. CD Projekt Red, the developer of the cyberpunk adventure game Cyberpunk 2077, said last week that it will no longer sell the game in Russia, either digitally or physically.
