Hitman 2 Censorship

302

The official Hitman 2 website now has a link to a "Corporate Statement" with information about changes being made to the game. As it was, the game came under scrutiny because the Sikh community was not happy with the portrayal of its people in the assassin game. Here's what Eidos has now done, thanks Boba Fart.

In recognition of the concerns and sensitivities which have been raised, Eidos and the developers, IO Interactive, have responded in both a socially and commercially responsible manner by: - removing from the Hitman 2 website all relevant images and content; - taking steps to amend the game on all existing platforms; and - adapting the next edition of the game due out for the GameCube platform. Eidos and IO Interactive would like to stress that no offence was intended but would like to apologise to the Sikh community and other persons for any offence taken.

      it is called being sensitive to cultural groups.. the world is not just full of white people, in fact, white people are the MINORITY in both North America and the world.. deal with it.
