Sniper Elite 3 developer Rebellion has released an official statement in which they clarified why several owners of the PC version for the latest Sniper Elite game in the series found their game deactivated out of the blue.

We can confirm that we have not revoked any keys sent to these companies, nor have they reported any problems to us.
