The government of Ukraine is demanding the digital sale of Atomic Heart for all platforms.
Ukraine wants to ban the game Atomic Heart from the digital stores of Microsoft, Sony and Valve.
The Ukrainian government wants to contact the platform operators and ask them to remove it.
Speaking on the Ukrainian government’s website, Deputy Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine Alex Bornyakov said:
“In view of the release of the Atomic Heart game, which has Russian roots and romanticizes communist ideology and the Soviet Union, the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine will send an official letter to Sony, Microsoft and Valve, proposing a ban on the sale of digital versions of this game in Ukraine.”
“We also urge restricting distribution of this game in other countries due to its toxicity, potential data collection from users, and potential use of game purchase funds to wage war against Ukraine.”
The statement also refers to media reports that the game was said to have been financed by Russian companies.
“According to media reports, the development of the game was financed by Russian companies. We therefore urge all users worldwide to avoid this game.”
“We would also like to emphasize that the developers of the game have not publicly condemned the Putin regime and the bloody war that Russia has unleashed against Ukraine.”
Set in an alternate history set in 1955, Atomic Heart only released on Tuesday for consoles, PC and Game Pass, almost exactly a year after the start of the war in Ukraine.
