GamersGate CEO released a statement distancing the company from GamerGate. CEO Theodore Bergqvist noted that GamersGate had been receiving threats and nasty emails because people were getting GamersGate and GamerGate confused.
Bergqvist went on to clarify that:
As many of you are aware of, recently there has been a fierce and infected discussion about sexism as well as journalistic ethics in the gaming industry. We’ve received threats and harsh words from around the world and want to make it clear for everyone that Gamersgate.com is not part of this controversy whatsoever.
GamersGate.com is a digital distribution platform for over 6,000 PC and MAC games. They feature a good mix of AAA and indie titles. A well established site, they are hoping to celebrate their 10th anniversary next year.
