Electronic Arts will finally leave Russia, close technical support and (probably) abandon the Russian language

The company Electronic Arts, which on March 4, 2022 stopped selling games in Belarus and Russia, as well as suspended the in-game microtransactions, is preparing to leave the Russian market entirely.

Here's What We Know

This is reported by the Russian newspaper "Izvestia" with reference to an anonymous former employee of an advertising agency that cooperated with EA. According to new information, all PR-activities in the CIS countries are now in the hands of the Polish office of the company.

Electronic Arts already closed its Russian office three years ago, and now is preparing to abandon its representation in the country. This led to the closure of technical support and deprivation of bonuses that players could accrue in case of problems with the servers.

Also, after the final withdrawal from Russia, Electronic Arts may abandon the Russian language in the games. In this case, without translation will remain the upcoming releases Need For Speed Unbound and Wild Hearts. Although many of today's games do not have Russian voice-over, due to the large volume of sound.
