CD Projekt Red, the makers of Cyberpunk 2077 and owners of GOG.com (Good Old Games), are taking a stand in the Russian invasion of Ukraine which began on 25 February.
The company has halted the sales of its games in Russia and Belarus “until further notice”.
“Today, we begin working with our partners to suspend digital sales and cease physical stock deliveries of CD Project Group products, as well as all games distributed on the GOG platform, to the territories of Russia and Belarus.
The entire CD Projekt Group stands firm with the people of Ukraine. While we are not a political entity capable of directly influencing state matters, and donâ€™t aspire to be one, we do believe that commercial entities, when united, have the power to inspire global change in the hearts and minds of ordinary people.
We know that players in Russia and Belarus, individuals who have nothing to do with the invasion of Ukraine, will be impacted by this decision, but with this action we wish to further galvanize the global community to speak about what is going on in the heart of Europe.
To our brothers and sisters fighting for their home country â€“ stay strong!â€
That’s one way to make people forget about CD Projekt’s past botches for Cyberpunk 2077. In related news, Ukraine’s Deputy Prime Minister called on Xbox and PlayStation to halt product support in both Russia and Belarus. Also, companies like EA and GSC Game World are doing their part in helping Ukraine out while boycotting Russia and Belarus.
