Again, videogames had to be in trouble with censorship, bureaucratic or social. The latest news in this regard comes from a controversy generated as a result of a promotional post by Watch Dogs Legion that was seen as a support to the demonstrations last Sunday in Hong Kong.
In the publication you can see the image of the video game where the umbrellas are protagonists under the following message: ” we do not know each other and we never met. But we defend the same goal and we meet here! It is time for us to recover our city [omitting the name of London] and our future. “
In Hong Kong, the movement fighting to maintain some autonomy and freedom of the Special Administrative Region against China receives the name of Revolution of the Umbrellas, while the curious coincidence of the new manifestations, this post and the omission of London from the promotional phrase led to the discomfort of some users, fact that forced hours later to apologize to the company.
” A post that promotes Watch Dogs Legion, new fiction video game developed in London, recently shared may have been misinterpreted due to our omission of its setting in London. This was never our intention and we apologize for the confusion ” expressed from Ubisoft.
