Humble Suspends Game Sales in Russia and Belarus

Another retailer is adjusting its normal scope of sales as a result of the war in Ukraine. The Humble store announced it will no longer sell games or bundles in Belarus and Russia. All games it published will also be pulled. It confirmed that a Humble Bundle that will completely benefit people in Ukraine is in the works too.

Here is the official statement from Humble about its store and upcoming bundle.

Like many in the world, we condemn the violent and unlawful invasion in Ukraine and the humanitarian crisis it is causing.

Today we are suspending sales of all Humble products and Humble Games titles in Russia and Belarus.

Many in our incredible community have asked how they can help stand with Ukraine. We are actively working on an all-to-charity bundle to help victims and refugees from Ukraine and will be announcing the details in the coming week.

In the meantime, we encourage the Humble community to donate directly to Razom for Ukraine, International Rescue Committee (IRC), International Medical Corps, or Direct Relief if possible.

With Humble’s announcement, that marks three digital PC stores that no longer sell to Russia as a result of the invasion. Both the Epic Games Store and GOG also suspended sales. So have Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony.
