Ubisoft has announced that esports events in Russia have been suspended
Russian players are still eligible to compete in regional and international events.
Earlier today, we reported on the announcement made by EA that revealed that Russia and Belarus and teams located in those countries will no longer be eligible to compete in EA esports events. Well, to add to that, another major games publisher has decided to impose sanction on Russia as well now.
Ubisoft has said in a short statement that its games portfolio in Russia has been suspended, and that Russian players will only be able to compete in regional or international events if they do so under a neutral banner and have been accepted to do so.
"In light of the ongoing tragedy in Ukraine, all official competitions on our games portfolio in Russia, such as the Russian Major League on Rainbow Six Siege, are suspended," said Ubisoft.
"Russian players will still be able to compete in our regional and international competitions if they choose to, but will be required to compete under a neutral banner, and have accepted to do so."
