Razer Will Close Digital Games Marketplace
The Razer announced on Monday (18) the closure of its online store digital games. Conveniently called the Razer Game Store, the marketplace ceases to function less than a year after it opened in April last year, and will no longer deliver special promotions and discounts to users of peripheral products and accessories.
The service ceases to function on November 28th. In the note announcing its closure, Razer cites a need for alignment as the motive behind the decision but makes clear that pre-sales will be honored and games purchased by customers will continue to work as long as keys obtained through Game Store have been activated on services such as Steam or Uplay.
In addition, the company says it will continue to offer great content and offerings to its customers through other current programs, such as Razer Gold or Silver, where virtual currencies can be exchanged for games or discounts on branded products. Games events and special promotions, for example, guarantee units that can then be used to purchase titles or equipment.
The Razer Game Store was opened in April 2018 as a way to privilege brand fans and also deliver exclusive discounts through partnerships with producers. Recently, for example, Far Cry: New Dawn was sold at a discount of 20%, while Metro Redux, according to the conditions, was down by up to 75%. Many of these deals, however, are already off the air, even though the online store continues to market titles that can be registered in third-party services.
