The online platform proposed a debate on the DLC on its Twitter that did not sit well with the editor.
The legitimacy of the products that G2A sells in its online market has always been in doubt on the part of the main publishers of the sector and the video game developers themselves, who have never hesitated to show their rejection of the practices of the store. Devolver Digital has gone one step further today, calling G2A “trash company” on their official Twitter account.
It all started with a G2A tweet in which he asked his users “Why do creators make us pay for DLC?”, A question that comes from a website that sells game keys that do not end up having an impact on the benefits of the developers themselves, has annoyed the independent video game publisher. The answers were not long in the tense conversation on Twitter.
Many are the developers and workers of the sector who have not hesitated to express their opinion to G2A, inviting the company to stop selling DLC or criticizing its grey sales policies. The sellers have not been cut, and have not hesitated to answer some industry professionals in an ironic way, criticizing the state of Anthem or Destiny 2 in its premiere or calling the DLC ” Sale“.
The tweet of Devolver Digital has been very viral, being shared and retweeted by hundreds of players in its first minutes in the social network. It is not the first battle in the G2A network with a video game company: it has already starred others with firms such as Riot Games or Gearbox Software, with which it had serious problems with Bulletstorm .
What a garbage company. https://t.co/TGhLmHTDfH
