Ubisoft and Devolver Digital has this week announced via a Tweet that it is actively cancelling Far Cry 4 game keys that have been purchased from third-party sellers.
The news comes following multiple Reddit users and gamers have taken to the Ubisoft support forums to report cases where their digital copies of their Far Cry 4 game have been deleted and removed from their Uplay accounts by Ubisoft after purchasing Key codes from third party sellers.
All the removed games has been activated using gaming keys purchased via third-party sellers including independent eBay stores and discount digital storefronts G2Play and G2A. Devolver Digital explains :
However G2Play’s FAQ answers the question of where they obtain their Key game codes from stating :
“All game codes/keys are picked up through major distributors, from their original retail boxes, and scanned up into our database.”
Leaving gamers that have been affected by the removal of their game in the middle. Reddit users TheIronPanda explains :
“Sadly it seems to be the case. I purchased a copy of Far Cry 4 off g2a a few weeks ago and was playing with no problem. Now I log into uPlay to play my legit purchased game, and its gone from my library. I contacted G2A and it seems like Ubisoft is mad that people prefer to buy games from them.
Then I contacted Ubisoft, they would not disclose any information about this with me as much as I pushed. They even went as far to call G2A an illegal service and would not be supporting any products bought from there. Which is insane, as far as I’m concerned.”
