Public backlash in Russia has caused 1C-SoftClub to remove Company of Heroes 2 from sale in the country.

Polygon reports that the regional publisher stopped selling the game in Russia after the game was blasted for a slant against the Russian troops.

“In connection with appeals of people who consider unacceptable number of episodes of the game, the company 1C-SoftClub chose 26 July 2013 to stop selling PC game Company of Heroes 2 (developer – Relic Entertainment, publisher – Sega) in the territory of the Russian Federation and CIS [Commonwealth of Independent States, a group of former USSR countries],” said 1C-SoftClub on their website. “At the moment we are analyzing the situation and [informing] the developer and publisher of Company of Heroes 2.”

Sega later told Polygon that, “Sega and Relic are aware of the press stories circulating concerning Company of Heroes 2 and the historical context of the game from a Russian perspective. At this time we cannot offer any further comment, however we are taking this issue very seriously and are investigating these concerns thoroughly with all relevant partners.”
