The Game developer added that they have complete confidence in their armed forces and their belief in the country. On the other hand Unisoft stated that the safety of their team members is their priority and primary concern. The spokesperson from the company assured that they are monitoring the situation closely and have also implemented a number of measures to keep the members of the team in Ukraine safe. It was also added that they do not have more details to share at the moment but will continue to monitor and adjust to the situation as it comes.
