Games for everyone policy (nope)
So i got 2 questions.
1) Why the f WB banned Belarus and Russia. Yeah i know whats goin on and not supportin it by any chance but EA still sellin stuff, some companies sellin stuff (still through xsolla\qiwi\yoomoney). And if you think that bannin ordinary ppl from buyin YOUR stuff makes a difference...well.
2) Why Turkey? lol. Why not Kazakhstan, Argentina? if you catch my drift. Or its because they cant fix TL?
WB - forgot (as some other companies) that games, sport and culture - is outta politics. Ordinary ppl is outta politics.

I think it is racism

The western world has lost its mind. It doesn't know how to differentiate between the Russian government and regular Russian citizens, so they lump every Russian into the same category.

Couldn't you just wait for the release date and use a VPN to purchase and download it? Being single player you don't HAVE to be online or play through Steam. Just a thought

No, it's againts Steam's rules to exploit system like this and your account can be banned for doing this.

well. Without getting too political. It's cuz they expect the change to come from the citizens to the country. Not outsiders. War is not worth it, but by taking away stuff from regular citizens, there's a chance they might rise up and wanna overthrow their current leaders. Be it through protesting or other stuff. I understand that can seem cruel, but that's the general idea of it, and to not support those countries in any given way, as a form of showcasing that their country is having a negative impact atm to the world. So they don't wanna be involved with them.

Right now Russia in particular has lost a lot of jobs and outside business. The point of that isn't to hurt Putin. It won't lol, but the idea is that eventually Citizens will get enough of all their prices going up or being kept in the dark for things, that eventually they would hopefully protest and start wanting to do something about it. The west don't wanna interfere more, because of the threat of war, so this is their way of dealing with it.

I do fully agree though that it sucks, but some change needs to happen. The west can't do it, but doing nothing won't stop the current war either. Regardless of how you feel about that situation. Who's bad or not. There's currently citizens who are dying, and that's a much bigger matter than you not recieving a game.

Russia should never have picked on the West's favorite corrupt money laundering empire.

Because Russia attacked a country without provocation resulting in sanctions being levied against it and Belarus, their ally, in a senseless war. Russia peddled a lie that Zelensky was a Nazi, when he is in fact Jewish, then tried to tell the world they are attacking Ukraine to rid the world of Nazis. The "nazis" they've killed, according to UNICEF, amount to nearly 1000 children killed, 5.5K confirmed civilian casualties, over 9k Ukrainian military losses, over 25k Russian military losses, and 6.6 million displaced Ukrainian citizens. Putin could stop this war immediately, he refuses to, so the world is putting economic pressure to change his ways in the face of him literally murdering thousands of men, women, and children. These pressures will hopefully inspire people such as yourselves to wake up to what kind of lying monsters you have in a leader such as Vladimir Putin and Aleksandr Lukashenko and finally put a stop to them. So yeah, you wanna play your wizarding game? It is up to you, do something about it.

And another thing, you wrote:

The world politics derives from an ancient Greek word "polis" meaning 'city' and "polites" meaning 'citizen' put together as "politikos." So no, games, sports, and culture very much DO have to do with the citizens who make up the ideal city or state. It is in the word. Again, it is up to you.

Maybe do something about your dictator. If you want things from American companies seems like you should get rid of small balls Putin.

Are you not on a list of dissenters now?. For wanting a game from which the story originated in Britain, and America has the rights to?

Seems like your country is trying to do exactly what these books were against. Take over and control another group of people.

You dont get to complain. Especially since you dont seem to get the message. You think Ukrainians with destroyed homes are getting the chance to buy it?
