Rockstar Games and their parent company Take-Two Interactive are currently in the process of suspending its games, merchandise and other content on sale across all of Russia and Belarus. 2K and other Take-Two subsidiaries are also in the process of suspending all game and content sales. This shortly comes after publishers across the games industry such as EA, CD Projekt Red and Ubisoft made statements that the companies would be committing to suspending all future sales and content in Russia and Belarus.
In a Twitter post via GTANet’s Administrator Kirsty Cloud, a friend of Kirsty’s had notified her that it was no longer possible to purchase any Rockstar Games titles on the Rockstar Games Launcher on PC – many in Russia reported that the ‘Store’ tab was removed earlier on the Rockstar Launcher, Rockstar Games have also blocked all Rockstar merchandise and physical title sales on its own official website. Rockstar’s website will now state their products are “unavailable available in your country or region”.
At the time of writing, all Rockstar and Take-Two titles and other content are currently available to purchase in Russia & Belarus on PlayStation and Xbox platforms, it’s very likely it won’t be long until Rockstar and Take-Two suspend all future purchases on both platforms.
Ahead of press time, Rockstar Games have been contacted for comment. We’ll update if the company responds back.
