"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.

That cannot be a real quote. How divorced from reality do you need to be to call those murderers courageous?

I can't wait to shoot soldiers who don't deserve it, civilians who don't see it coming, and then complain my pay isn't high enough.

Oh, spare me the dramatics.

Like there has never, ever, been a situation where a military contractor, even Blackwater, has acted courageously?

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.

Wow so the title was officially changed to spread the bullshit exaggeration circle-jerk.

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

This just confirms what I have known forever. MS supports terrorist.




Jk guys. Anyone that buys this game should be kicked in the nuts though.


Blackwater is not a company I could ever support. Murderers.

Blackwater apologists? Oh GAF, after all this time you never cease to amaze
I came into this thread, saw those posts and felt disgusted, I was going to rage but am just going to leave and try my best to ignore it.

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

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.
