EA will not sell The Sims Wedding Stories expansion Pack in Russia due to same-sex marriage laws

Electronic Arts has decided not to release the next My Wedding Stories expansion pack for The Sims in Russia. This is due to the nations laws against same-sex marriages.

In a blog post , the company said it will not release My Wedding Stories in any territories “where our storytelling would be subject to changes because of federal laws.”

My Wedding Stories is an add-on that centers around engagements and weddings.

“As we moved through our development and brand storytelling process, we became aware that the way we wanted to tell Cam and Dom’s story would not be something we could freely share around the world,”

“The ability to tell stories — any story — is at the core of what we do at The Sims. Holding back Cam and Dom’s story meant compromising the values we live by. We are committed to the freedom to be who you are, to love who you love and tell the stories you want to tell.”

The blog post specifies that Russia will not receive this new game pack. Back in 2020, a national referendum went in favor of several constitutional changes, one of which was excluding same-sex couples from getting married.
