- EA made a statement on March 4, saying that it will stop selling its games, DLCs, and other virtual content both in Russia and Belarus until this conflict ends. Prior to that, the company also decided to exclude Russian teams from the FIFA and NHL series.
- Although Rockstar hasn’t released any statement yet, the studio’s games became unavailable on the Rockstar Store, with users located in Russia seeing the following warning: “This game is unavailable in your country or your region.” This ban hasn’t covered other digital stores so far.
