It has been reported this week that publisher Deep Silver has been issuing warnings to Steam users and deactivated activation keys stolen from a factory for the new Metro Exodus game. A Steam Store version of the recently launched Metro Exodus game was available to pre-order up until January 28th 2019 after leaving steam to become a timed exclusive at the Epic games store for launch.
The Eurogmaer website explains that “No official Steam keys were available to purchase separately (Humblebundle and the Razer store were the only supported key sellers for Metro Exodus outside the Epic Games store upon launch).”
“Deep Silver said it had deactivated all the unlicensed keys, meaning activation and download of Metro Exodus without the executable file is no longer possible. And, the game will be removed from the Steam library of any players who used an unauthorised code. “The keys being sold on this platform are stolen goods, and are therefore illegal,” Deep Silver explained. “If you have been affected we strongly recommend you contact the seller who sold you the unlicensed key and demand a refund.””
Metro Exodus is the third game in the hugely popular ongoing single player Metro series. Metro Exodus is a first-person shooter video game developed by 4A Games that follows on from the events of previous games Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light.
