Mere days after announcing a partnership with controversial key reseller G2A, Gearbox Studios has gone back on their plans to release a Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition Collector’s Edition with the website.
After being met with backlash by fans over the deal with G2A over the past few days, Gearbox had offered a set of demands for G2A to meet in order for the studio to continue on with their planned arrangement. With the deadline for those demands being reached earlier today, head of publishing Steve Gibson released the following statement:
“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 on PS4, Xbox One and PC. For more on the unique FPS, check out our review of the title, which calls it a “solid, if somewhat dated, remaster.”
