  • G2A confirms stolen game key sales, pays $40,000 to Factorio devs


     




    Quote





    After years of controversy, gray-market game key marketplace G2A has admitted to what it has long been accused of by angry game developers: profiting from the sale of illegitimate download keys—at least in one specific instance.




    In a blog post yesterday, G2A confirmed that 198 copies of Factorio sold on G2A in early 2016 were indeed obtained illegitimately. G2A says it will pay Factorio developer Wube 10 times the "bank-initiated refund costs" it incurred for those fraudulent purchases, or roughly $40,000.




    But the discovery and confirmation of the fraudulent keys in this one specific case come only after years of controversy and argument over the role of the marketplace.

    Well, not surprising honestly. I am sure many of you may have known G2A was a grey market to begin with. Those prices were suspiciously too low to begin with. I a lot of devs were not happy with them doing what they did. It is good to see the win for the little guys on this one.
