‘Frostpunk 2’ developers call out key seller scam

"We don't have any keys"

The Frostpunk 2 team has drawn attention to a “shitty scammer” selling keys for the game before it has even been priced, rated, or released.

The site, Kinguin, was mentioned in a tweet from the official Frostpunk Twitter account. In the tweet, the site was labelled as a “crook” and a “shitty scammer”, with the developers pointing out that “we don’t know the price of our game yet, we don’t have any keys”.

There is currently no legitimate way of preordering Frostpunk 2, but the site in question lists the game for £27.25.

11 Bit Studios recently released a cinematic trailer for Frostpunk 2, along with a piece of artwork and scant information. The announcement revealed that the sequel takes place 30 years after the apocalyptic blizzard storm while Earth is still overwhelmed by the icy climate of never-ending frost.

“What we aim to deliver to players is an experience that goes vastly beyond that of the original Frostpunk,” said Jakub Stokalski, co-Director of Frostpunk 2.

“With a still-growing team of nearly 70 people, we have more manpower available to focus on all aspects of the game from the scale, the production value, and the quality of UX, but our ambition is to do more than a straight-up sequel.”

Frostpunk 2’s Steam page is live, and the game is available to wishlist, but as yet there is no price or release date confirmed.

In other news, the release date for Call Of Duty: Vanguard has been announced, along with the sale price and some plot details.
