"The Blackwater team is comprised of an amazing group of individuals and we're proud to work with them to create a video game that showcases their talent and courage," said Ian Howe, President, 505 Games. "Being able to get the controller out of player's hands with Kinect and have them on the ground and immersed in the experience will give them a glimpse of what it takes to be a member of an elite fighting force."

Xe is currently facing a lawsuit filed by former employees claiming that the security company fraudulently billed the US military as part of a $1 billion contract to provide security services in Iraq and Afghanistan. The company's image has suffered since a 2007 shooting in Baghdad which resulted in federal charges against several Blackwater employees.

The Blackwater game is being developed by Zombie Studios, a team with previous experience in the military first-person genre. Zombie developed the near-future shooter Blacklight: Tango Down, and is working on a free-to-play sequel to that title as well.

For more on Zombie's previous effort, check out Gamespot's review of Blacklight: Tango Down.

Every single person who has, or will, work for a military contractor, drinks the blood of innocent civilians while raping and pillaging their way across whatever country lets them in their borders.

They are all murderers. Every last one of them!

Completely reasonable.

Do you know how fucking stupid it is to call them all murderers over a single incident?

Your moral outrage doesn't give you license to make shit up. Guess what, incidents like the backwater one have happened COUNTLESS times in the actual military, so are you going to call the entire military a bunch of un-courageous murderers too?

Think before you open your mouth.

No please, let him continue with the nonsense. I'm sure he's got the inside scoop on everything because he overheard some pundit on a news program stating an opinion, and now he's decided to borrow that and pass it off as his own.

True. MW hoo-raah dudebro patriot brainwash atmosphere gets me sick to the stomach. I don't know how I managed to finish career on 1 and 2. Can't do any MW anymore.

Also pathetic to make any kind of apology to the terrorist organization called BlackWater. America should be ashamed of it.

I guess Battlefield 3 should get a similar title? After all, I'm sure AT LEAST ONCE something similar has happened in the military...

It doesn't seem to be apologists, it seems people are taking issue with the obvious hypocrisy and absurd absolutes being thrown around.

Think before you open your mouth.

They opened fire on a crowd of civilizans because steroid men got too itchy and trigger-happy. How the fuck can you say it hapened before?

Anyway, there is 0% the game will come out, I'm sure shitloads of NGOs in America will oppose it and the whole project will be closed.

Fucking right. Good thing I hated Modern Warfare 2, then. Don't get me started on Black Ops, either.

Though I will still be buying Battlefield 3. Does that make me a hypocrite? That's bad.

Nice new thread title, too. You mods keep spreading that truth.
