Razer gave two weeks’ notice today that its Razer Game Store is shutting down on Feb. 28.

Razer, in the note to customers, attributed the shutdown to “the company’s realignment plans.” That realignment comes not even a year after the storefront’s April 2018 launch.

The Razer Game Store sold keys for Steam and Uplay games, so any game anyone has bought isn’t going away. However, those who haven’t yet activated any keys need to retrieve their keys from the Razer Game Store before the shutdown, which is 4 a.m. on Feb. 28. Game keys were also sent to customers via email, so they have records of them there, too.

Pre-ordered games will still be fulfilled, Razer said in an FAQ. Razer Silver, an incentive program, can still be redeemed for rewards even after the Game Store shuts down. Razer Gold, the company’s virtual credits system, is also still valid in the Razer Gold Catalog. The company said that after the shutdown, it will “be investing in other ways to deliver great content and introduce game promotions through Razer Gold.”
