The Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine has noticed the release of the Russian game Atomic Heart and will send an official letter to Sony, Microsoft, and Valve to ban the game's sale in Ukraine.
Here's What We Know
According to dev.ua, Deputy Minister of Digital Transformation Oleksandr Borniakov commented on the game's release:
"We also call for limiting the distribution of this game in other countries due to its toxicity, potential collection of user data and the possibility of transferring it to third parties in Russia, as well as the potential use of money raised from game purchases to wage war against Ukraine.
Borniakov also called for all users to ignore the game. He emphasised to the Western audience that the developers have not issued a public statement condemning the Putin regime and the bloody war that Russia has waged against Ukraine.
Atomic Heart is a Russian game by Mundfish studio, sponsored by Russian publisher Gaijin and Gazprom top manager Anatoly Paliy. This was reported by Ukrainian blogger OLDboi.
The developers are trying to pretend that they are a Cypriot studio, but events for media representatives in Moscow and Russian sponsors immediately show who the authors really are. The game will be set in the Soviet Union, where a robot uprising has taken place, forcing a KGB officer to save the country. The gg editorial team urges you not to buy the game and not to sponsor the Russian government.
