Battlestate Twitch Ban

Escape from Tarkov developer Battlestate Games has received a ban from Twitch during a celebratory drops campaign on the platform. The Russian developer reportedly committed some "mischievous behavior" during a recent stream that violated Twitch's Community Guidelines and even their anti-violence policies.

According to Insider Gaming, news of the ban came days after the latest update that expanded the city and added new equipment. Battlestate Games had been hosting daily streams to celebrate their periodic drops campaign on Twitch, with what happened in one of them apparently being the reason for their untimely ban.

This isn't their first ban. Insider's report states the developers have "reportedly wielded replica weapons and pointing them at one another," which Twitch may have seen as a violation of their anti-violence policies. Moreover, it claimed that at least one developer "was visibly drunk on the steam" and would violate Twitch's Community Guidelines. It's unclear which of these instances was the reason (or even if these were the offenses) behind the ban since Twitch or Battlestate hasn't publicly explained.

Despite the setback, Battlestate is still going strong with their drops campaign event on Twitter. With that, it's safe to assume the event will still run until January 7th.
