Stolen Sniper Elite 3 Keys Banned

A Steam Community discussion talks of how some companies have been selling "unlicensed or stolen" Sniper Elite 3 Steam keys, saying these keys have been banned, and instructing anyone impacted by this to contact their vendor for a new key (thanks nin). They also outline how preorder customers with banned keys can still get their Target Hitler bonus DLC by contacting them once they have their key situation straightened out. There are also a couple of posts from a key reseller accusing Rebellion of scamming users, saying the keys were revoked so that customers would have to pay twice. Here's Rebellion's explanation of the situation:

To clarify, one of our PC retail distributors informed us that some of their allotted Steam keys were stolen. We believe these keys were then resold to multiple companies, with no payments going to either Valve or the retail distributor.

Steam were immediately informed and have now revoked that set of keys.

As a developer Rebellion are happy for you to purchase the game anywhere you see fit and support price competition in the PC market - we have in no way targeted any specific vendors (who may have also thought these keys were legitimate), just this one set of keys.

All we can suggest if you have been affected is to please contact your vendor and first ask for a replacement key, and then contact us for the free pre-order DLC if you are successful.
