Epic Games, Activision and Blizzard Stop Selling Games In Russia

Epic Games, Activision and Blizzard are the latest companies to boycott Russia over its invasion of Ukraine.

The publishers will temporarily stop selling games in Russia until the war is over and, in some cases, stop offering in-game microtransactions as well.

Activision president and CEO announced that his company will temporarily suspend game sales and in-game purchases in Russia.

Then, a day later, Epic Games did the same.

“Epic is stopping commerce with Russia in our games in response to its invasion of Ukraine. We’re not blocking access for the same reason other communication tools remain online: the free world should keep all lines of dialogue open,” the company said in a statement.

Other game publishers and companies with gaming divisions to stop selling their products in Russia are Electronic Arts, CD Projekt Red and Microsoft.

According to Statista, Russia was last year the eight largest market for video games, with a revenue of $2.7 billion.
