EA isn’t a company I cover a lot. But their actions in regards to Russia are very newsworthy. It starts with literally erasing teams from Russia and Belarus from their two biggest sports franchises. Their NHL games:

And their football/soccer games:

But they didn’t stop there. They’ve now done this:

We have made the decision to stop sales of our games and content, including virtual currency bundles, in Russia and Belarus while this conflict continues. As a result, our games and content will no longer be available for purchase in our Russian region storefront on Origin or the EA app, including through in-game stores. We are also working with our platform partners to remove our titles from their stores and stop the sale of new in-game content in the region.

Those are significant shots across the bow. And I am sure that will get someone’s attention in the Kremlin.

Good on you EA!
