Developers behind the game Escape from Tarkov have been banned from Twitch after a member of their team imitated a suicide act during a recent stream.
The official Battlestate Games Twitch channel has been banned for violating the streaming platform’s Community Guidelines.
The act in question occurred during a stream on December 29th, a member of their dev team wearing a balaclava picked up an unloaded pistol, cocked the gun, placed it to the side of his head, and pulled the trigger.
The act was done apparently to convey frustration over a price of an expensive in-game item.
There is currently no update as when, or if, the channel will be unsuspended from Twitch.
