Following the conflict in Ukraine, CD Projekt has decided to halt all sales of Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077 in Russia and Belarus. “The entire CD PROJEKT Group stands firm with the people of Ukraine,”  Stated the company's Twitter. CD Projekt is located in Poland, a nation bordering Ukraine that is now feeling the repercussions of the conflict. Hundreds of thousands of Ukrainian refugees have begun to arrive on the country's doorstep.

The post goe's on to say, “While we are not a political entity capable of directly influencing state matters, and don'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,”.



Actions Taken by EA

Another big gaming company, Electronic Arts Entertainment made an announcement from its EA Sports FIFA Twitter. “In line with our partners at FIFA and EUFA, EA Sports has initiated the processes to remove the Russian National Team and all Russian clubs from EA Sports FIFA,” Say's EA late last night. The post goe's on to say this will take place in FIFA 22, FIFA Mobile, and FIFA Online.

As well, EA Sports NHL Twitter released a statement at the same time that follows a similar suit.
