Ubisoft is excused for the inclusion of street art in Division 2 which contained a homophobic bond. A player spotted the artwork documenting odd or misspelled graffiti in the game. The picture has since been removed from the game.
As reported by Eurogamer, the work in question contains an exaggerated portrait of a policeman juggling a donut. Their badge bears the designation "FA6607", an expression spoken at the l33 bears the word fagot. Whether it is to joke or not the police, the use of an insult used traditionally to deprive of his rights and make fun of queer people raised eyebrows. If someone shouted at me that random garbage on the street – and that's what happened – it would not necessarily lead to anything good.
In an email to Kotaku, Ubisoft proposed a statement similar to that provided to Eurogamer.
"It was brought to our attention that a piece of street art from Tom Clancy's The Division 2 contained shocking content," said one representative. "We removed the game's image via a fix on Thursday, April 11. We apologize for the fact that this image was ignored by our content review processes, so we're reviewing it for the first time." avoid this kind of monitoring in the future. "
The offending imagination was removed yesterday, but it raises questions about the internal review process for adding this art to the game and why no one noticed any disguised bullying. Division 2 is a complicated game, both a fun shooter and a story with a little subtle politics. This shows us that even in an allegedly apolitical game, something nasty can slip through the cracks.
