Razer will request that customers’ data to be deleted by any partner Razer Game Store is no longer working with. Customers who need assistance can get in touch with their customer support via firstname.lastname@example.org. The email sent to users also included a list of frequently-asked questions, which clarified that all purchased games work even after the closure. Gamers will be receiving an email with an archive of their purchases where they can activate them on Steam or UPlay at their own convenience.
