Razer Game Store ceases online operations as part of 'realignment plans'

Razer Game Store closing up shop after less than a year

The Razer Game Store will cease operations at the end of the month after less than a year, according to a post today on the store site. Razer didn't provide an explanation for the shutdown other than to say that it is part of "the company's realignment plans".

Razer will still fulfill any pre-orders made through the store, and any games you've already bought will work as long as you retrieve the keys-either Steam or Uplay-before February 28. Rather than act as a direct portal for purchasing games, it instead gave gamers some pretty good deals on games. Razer will also fulfill any pre-orders players now have on upcoming games.

Phoebe Bridgers Posts Her First Public Statement Addressing Ryan Adams’s Sexual Harassment
Like other women in the article, Bridgers came forward after learning that his behavior toward others was similar. Adams also released his own statement via Twitter reading, "I am not a ideal man and I have made many mistakes".

Razer will be requesting for all user data to be deleted "by any partner Razer Game Store is no longer working with" and will "continue to protect your data according to Razer's Privacy Policy". The statement said that the company will be investing in other ways to deliver great content and introduce game promotions through their virtual credits system Razer Gold.

As short-lived as Razer's foray into selling games on its own platform is, the situation is a critical reminder that even the major brand names in the industry find it tough to go up against the competition.
