Two-Two Interactive, the parent company of Rockstar, 2K, and Private Division, has announced that it has suspended support for its games in Russia and Belarus, in response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
“We have watched recent events unfold in Ukraine with concern and sadness,” said Take-Two's Alan Lewis in a statement to gamesindustry.biz. “After significant consideration, last week, we decided to stop new sales, installations, and marketing support across all our labels in Russia and Belarus at this time.”
Take-Two is the latest company to pull support from Russia, as well as its ally Belarus, following the likes of Microsoft and EA. It could be the most significant, however, as gamesindustry.biz reports that GTA V is the third most popular game in Russia, only behind Dota 2 and CS:GO.
Other video game companies, such as Embracer Group and 11 Bit Studios, have been donating money towards humanitarian causes in aid of Ukraine.
