Famous game developers Ubisoft and Bungie have joined a caravan of companies collecting donations for the fire that has ravaged Australia. Ubisoft Australia made a $ 30k donation to the Australian Red Cross Disaster and Recovery Fund, the statement said on Twitter.
Ubisoft stated that game lovers had requested a fundraising activity added to the game, but that direct donation was the quickest way to help those affected by the fire. Faced with heartbreaking images, Ubisoft said the uncontrollable fire had caused huge damage to the public, adding that they felt the need to take immediate action.
Another game developer, Bungie, also announced it would help Wildlife Conservation Society WIRES and the NSW Rural Fire Service. The campaign, which runs from January 16 to February 18, will sell T-shirts for donations and all proceeds will go to these two institutions.
A statement from Bungie's blog said the T-shirts will come with the pay code "Destiny 2 ‘Star Light, Star Bright’" on them. The design of the T-shirts, which are being pre-ordered from Bungie Store and Bungie Store EU, is still being worked on.
