The popular sandbox game has been removed from Russia's mobile app markets as a result of Microsoft's decision to discontinue providing services to the country due to the country's ongoing conflict with Ukraine. To demonstrate their full support for Ukraine, major mobile technology companies such as Apple and Samsung have also decided to stop providing their services and have agreed to the sanctions imposed on Russia.
Nonetheless, it is a sad day for the Russian gaming community to learn that the popular game is no longer available in their country, as it helped shape their childhood memories. Fans and gamers who have always had a strong desire to play the game will be disappointed to learn that they will be unable to do so.
It is unclear when Microsoft will bring back the popular sandbox in the country's mobile app markets. Since the majority of the Russian gaming community is made up of young people, they remain hopeful that the game will be available for purchase once more.
