A new update from unnamed employees that claims the business is now effectively being blackmailed into paying overdue salaries or the source code for four of its games would be posted online.

The employee is allegedly in possession of the source code for four Motorsports video games: NASCAR: Ignition 21, NASCAR: HEAT 5, Indycar, and KartKraft, according to the threat. The employee has threatened to reveal the source code for all four games to the public online if overdue wages are not paid by January 25.

Other staff members unfamiliar with the circumstances claimed that they were “not surprised” that such dramatic measures were being taken by someone who likely has “nothing to lose.”

It was stated that the 30 employees who made up the Russian studio had not received pay since October. Additionally, it was disclosed that some employees were given the option to go to Georgia in exchange for their paychecks (without any assistance from the employer).

Employees are adamant that Indycar will be the next game the business releases; however, they expect NASCAR 23 to be postponed until 2024.

We’ll keep you informed as we learn more about the situation and whether the games’ source code will be available to the public before the end of the month.
