Roblox removes games depicting war in Ukraine

The titles were delisted for violating community standards hours after the BBC sent an inquiry about them

Gaming platform Roblox has recently removed two games depicting war within Ukraine.

As reported by the BBC, the titles featured real world locations and in-game experiences which mirrored the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The publication notes that the games War on Larkiv: Ukraine and Battle for Ukraine, were removed for violating community standards, hours after it contacted Roblox about them.

"We have strict community standards which govern the portrayal of real-world events," a Roblox spokesperson told BBC.

"Both of the experiences in question have been removed for violating our standards following an assessment by our moderation team."
