You remember the one. The one with the sexy nuns who crack out some crazy weapons and try to kill our crome domed Agent 47? Well if you haven’t, here it is for reference purposes. It’s well worth a watch, even if you have already seen it.
As a result of that video there was an outcry by certain members of the gaming press, as well as some of the public, and now Swedish Developers, IO, have come out and apologised.
Speaking to IGN, the games director Tore Blystad said the following:
“We’re sorry that we offended people – that was truly not the intention of the trailer,”
“Of course we understand, this has been a very big topic for us and we’ve been reading as much as we could of the articles and responses. We were surprised that it turned into such a huge topic. Something similar happened with our Sniper Challenge pre-order bonus.”
“We just wanted to make something cool, it wasn’t the intention to stir up anything. It was never the intention to provoke people with it.”
I for one certainly wasn’t offended, but where do you sit on the subject? Let us know in the comments below.
