US video game developer Epic Games stops trading with Russia

US video game developer Epic Games has announced a halt to trade with Russia in response to Russia’s war on Ukraine.

The company, however, said it was not blocking access to other communication tools, which will remain online, saying “the free world should keep all lines of dialogue open” in a message posted to Twitter on Sunday.

Epic Games has developed popular video games such as Fortnite, Unreal Engine, Gears of War, and Infinity Blade series.

Another American video game developer, Activision Blizzard, announced on Friday that it was suspending new sales of its games in Russia as the war continues.

The company said it raised more than $300,000 with its employees and plans to add more charities to review this week.

Activision Blizzard has developed popular video game series such as Call of Duty, Guitar Hero, World of Warcraft, StarCraft, and Candy Crush Saga.
