Amazon Games has paused production on a Russian localization of New World amid the ongoing attacks on Ukraine. During a TechRadar interview with Amazon Games vice president Christoph Hartmann, he revealed they have halted work on the New World localization which a spokesperson later confirmed was in response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Amazon Games joins 11 bit studios, CD Projekt, EA, and many other game companies showing their support of Ukraine. The company's action speaks volumes as Russia is no small market. For them to make this move says where they stand in the ongoing conflict. The move comes after Ukraine's vice prime minister and minister of digital transformation Mykhailo Fedorov's plea in an open letter to PlayStation, Xbox, and the whole gaming industry. His request was for game companies to \u201ctemporarily block all Russian and Belarusian accounts, temporarily stop the participation of Russian and Belarusian teams and gamers in all international esports events and cancel all international events holding on the territory of Russia and Belarus.\u201d \u201cThe armed forces and citizens are defending Ukraine till the end. The whole world is repelling the aggressor through the imposition of sanctions \u2014 the enemy must suffer significant losses. But we need your support \u2014 in 2022, modern technology is perhaps the best answer to the tanks, multiple rocket launchers, and missiles,\u201d Fedorov said in an open letter on Twitter. Since then, the three console platform holders have responded in their own way like Sony quietly pulling Gran Turismo 7 from sale in Russia seemingly in response. Microsoft meanwhile is suspending sales of all of its products in Russia, Nintendo's investment partner The Pok\u00e9mon Company is donating $200,000 which is set to go toward helping \u201ccommunity-led organizations supporting families and children\u201d in Ukraine.
