The Russian invasion of Ukraine is also showing its effects in the gaming world. A planned DLC for Euro Truck Simulator 2 is now feeling the effects of this.
With Heart of Russia, a new DLC for Euro Truck Simulator 2 was released in March last year
By the time the invasion began on February 24, the DLC was nearing completion and only needed about six to eight weeks. But now, after much deliberation, SCS has put a stop to it. in one Statement It says: “Since our Heart of Russia DLC directly affects Russia and so many people are suffering, we have chosen not to release the DLC so that it will not be perceived in any way as supporting or condoning the aggression.”
The studio had already released a Ukrainian Paint Jobs Pack DLC in support of humanitarian organizations and donated all of the proceeds. According to SCS, the DLC has sold a whopping 80,000 copies.
SCS does not rule out releasing Heart of Russia when the war is over: “When the time comes for Ukraine to be rebuilt and healed, we will strive to find a way like our Heart of Russia DLC for everyone can play a role in this healing process.”
