Gearbox Publishing is officially shutting down its partnership with G2A, which it co-produced with Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition. This is a consequence of the non-compliance of the party’s promoters to the postulates put forth by the title publisher.
Yesterday was the premiere of Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition – a refreshing version of a crazy first person shooter from the Polish People Can Fly studio. This title caused minor controversy, mainly for two reasons.

First of all, Gearbox Publishing has announced that the sequel to this popular shooter in some circles is largely dependent on the sales of the remaster. It did not appeal to some fans who did not smile at the need to spend big money on essentially the same game.
Second, the Bulletstorm Gearbox: Full Clip Edition has teamed up with G2A, the online platform to sell game keys. The special offers include several special editions of the title, available in several variants, as well as exclusive figurines of the main hero Bulletstorm. The problem, however, is that the G2A does not have a good reputation in the industry. It mainly involves the sale of keys, which often come from murky sources and lack of communication with game makers. Gearbox Publishing has fallen into criticism and therefore, to support its image, it has launched a number of postulates that you may read in our news yesterday. In case of default, Gearbox threatened to terminate immediately. As expected, G2A executives ignored the ultimatum, which forced the Bulletstorm publisher: Full Clip Edition to act. According to Eurogamer, all contacts between Gearbox Publishing and G2A will soon be officially broken.

The case was commented on by Eurogamer Steve Gibson, a representative of Gearbox Publishing:
As there was no public statement from G2A until the release of „Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition” on PC, Gearbox Publishing decided not to directly support the platform, which has made no effort to protect consumers and manufacturers, as requested. Gearbox Publishing. We do not control the G2A platform nor where the keys may come from outside of our company, but we can confirm that the collapse process has started today.

It can not be hidden that Gearbox Publishing has made a fatal mistake, negatively affecting the image of the company. The only question remains, how all this confusion will affect the sale of Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition? For the sake of the sequel you should hope to do as little as possible. Recall that the game appeared on PC, PlayStation 4 and XBox One.
