The proposed development resource may take billions of Russian Rubles to fund

This month Russia’s major tech firms have been in conversation with the government to develop a national game engine.

As reported by PC Gamer, these talks for an alternative engine follow after game companies halted their businesses in the country — in response to its invasion of Ukraine.

The proposed game development resource may require billions of Russian Rubles to fund.

PC Gamer adds that the project is being supported by the country’s most prominent digital and internet services providers.

As of March, firms that have pulled out of the Russian games market include Microsoft, Electronic Arts, Activision Blizzard, Epic Games, CD Projekt and Bloober Team.

Nintendo suspended all Russian eshop payments or Switch users and Sony stopped the launch of Gran Turismo 7 at the last minute.

IDG Consulting estimated that the Russian games market alone generated around $3.4 billion last year.
