There is yet another twist to the partnership between Gearbox and key reseller G2A. The game publisher for Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition has chosen to part ways with the retailer after it failed to make any public movement on the demands set.
The demands were seen to try and have the key reseller clean up their act by offering free fraud protection for customers rather than charging for it, among other things. G2A would have had until today when Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition released.
While the partnership may have ended, the retailer still has the Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition Collector’s Edition offers listed as being available.
Gearbox head of publishing Steve Gibson told Eurogamer:
As there has been no public movement from G2A by the time Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition launched now on PC, Gearbox Publishing will be doing their part to not directly support a marketplace that did not make the new public commitment to protecting customers and developers requested by Gearbox Publishing. We do not control G2A’s marketplace or where they may obtain keys from parties outside of Gearbox Publishing, but we can confirm that today we have begun executing on our extraction process.
Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition is available now for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
