Gardenscapes developer Playrix is reportedly shutting down its offices in Russia and Belarus and stopping all commercial activities in these countries, due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
That’s according to an internal message from Playrix’s founders, Igor and Dmitri Bukhman, which explained that staff from the Russian and Belarusian offices will be relocated to other countries, Ukrainian tech publication AIN.ua reported last week.
The statement added that more details would be communicated to staff by the studio executives, according to Google Translate.
Game World Observer noted that Playrix has 16 offices in Russia and at least 1,500 employees in the country. It only has one office in Belarus, in Minsk.
Earlier this year, Playrix was among the companies to offer relocation support for its employees in Ukraine.
