Razer Game Store closing up shop after 10 months

Razer this week announced that the Razer Game Store, which launched last April, will shut down at the end of February. As of February 28, the online storefront will close as part of Razer's "realignment plans" (via MSPU).

"It has been a privilege for us to recommend and deliver great digital game deals to you," Razer said in its announcement. "We have been extremely fortunate to have you as part of our awesome community. Thank you for the support and making all this possible."

Because the Razer Game Store distributed purchases as Steam and Uplay codes, any games you've purchased and redeemed will remain available. If you have any keys that you haven't activated yet, you'll want to make sure you have them saved somewhere before the store shuts down.

In an accompanying FAQ, Razer says that it will still honor any preorders customers have made through the store. Any Razer Silver or Razer Gold that you've acquired can be used to purchase rewards and other items elsewhere in Razer's catalog.

If you've used the Razer Game Store since its launch last year, you can find more information on the closure via Razer's dedicated FAQ.
