Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is due for release on October 25, so we're mere days away, but the Call of Duty Russia Twitter account has announced that Sony has "decided not to sell the game in the Russian PS Store".
The statement clarifies that this is a "fully fictional story", and that the game will also be coming out on October 25 for PC and Xbox One players.
"Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is a fictional game that has been thoughtfully created to entertain fans and tell a compelling narrative. Sony Interactive Entertainment has decided not to sell Modern Warfare on the PlayStation Store in Russia at this time," a further statement to Eurogamer reads.
Farah is a female resistance fighter in the game's narrative, and here is what Activision Blizzard says about Russia's involvement with her and the story in Modern Warfare:
"Labeled a terrorist organization by the Russian government for their long-standing resistance, Russian soldiers are ordered to make no distinction between the terror group Al-Qatala and the liberation fighters under Farah's command. AQ terrorists pursue Farah and the ULF with a mandate to kill."
We're not sure if this is the reason for it being pulled, but we've reached out to Sony for comment.
