“We would like every resident of Russia to have easy access” – Wayfinder developers on the possibility of unblocking the game

We would like every resident of Russia to have easy “We would like every resident of Russia to have easy access” - Wayfinder developers on the possibility of unblocking the game

On November 10, 2023, it became known that the publishing division of Digital Extremes was closing. As a result, all rights to the multiplayer action role-playing game Wayfinder passed into the hands of developers from Airship Syndicate.

The MMO13.ru portal contacted the developers to ask whether it is now possible to unlock Wayfinder in Russia. An Airship Syndicate employee under the nickname Sir_Snarf responded to our request with the following:

“To be honest, it’s too early to say. It was never our intention to deny access to the game to anyone in the world. As far as I understand, the restrictions were caused by political sanctions against service providers, which are completely beyond our control. While we are in the process of transferring full ownership to Airship Syndicate, there will be a transition period. And once we do, we’ll still be open to finding a new home for Wayfinder with a new publishing partner. Self-publishing is one option, but not the only one we are considering.”

“Unfortunately, I believe that this is more a matter of world politics. We would like everyone in Russia to have easy access to Wayfinder, and we know that many people have found creative solutions to this. But ultimately, political sanctions are not in our power.”

We also asked why Wayfinder is not sold on Russian Steam, although many other games can be purchased without problems, to which we received a rather evasive answer. However, the developer clarified that they will be able to find out more when the game comes completely under their control:

“Unfortunately, I do not have an answer more than what I have already given. My best guess is what I say about service providers. Digital Extremes has been designing our internal servers and we will know more once they are under our control.”

Let us remind you that even before the launch of the Wayfinder servers, the Steam page was available in Russia. However, on the day of its early access release, the game was blocked.
