When attempting to make itself look a little better following the outrage of many developers for its shady business practices, G2A hollowly promised to pay developers 10 times the amount they were charged back for from fraudulent G2A purchases.
Now that it’s on the table, Subnautica developer Unknown Worlds is asking for what they were promised, and the chargebacks for their game Natural Selection 2.
Hey @G2A_com – thank you for offering to pay 10x the revenue lost due to our @NS2 game keys sold on your shady platform. CC @RaveofRavendale— Charlie Cleveland (@Flayra) August 12, 2019
You now owe us $300,000. Thanks. https://t.co/J5qof6wBZD pic.twitter.com/Oq97ofLoLD
The game Natural Selection 2 saw 1,341 Steam keys deactivated after it was discovered that they were all bought with a stolen credit card number. The actual owner of the credit card sought chargebacks which ended up costing Unknown Worlds $30,000.
Now that G2A has offered, it’s time to see if they’ll really follow through.
