Player Finds Female Genitalia in Watch Dogs 2, Sony Suspends His Account
In the gaming industry, every day brings something interesting to talk about. In 2016 alone, we had No Man’s Sky scandal, Battlefield 1 distasteful meme controversy and much more. However, the highlight of the year could be what happened to a player on Sony Entertainment Network.
Watch Dogs 2 is now released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with the PC version slated for November 29. Watch Dogs 2 comes with a vast open world filled with action packed scenes, strong dialogue, and even some nudity.
One of the players in the game found a very realistically rendered female genitalia in Watch Dogs 2. Well, we don’t mind looking at such discoveries but sharing it via the built-in PlayStation 4 share feature was not the best idea. Sony got hold of the “reveal” and suspended the player’s account for a month.
Female genitalia in Watch Dogs 2 was not the problem for Sony but sharing it via PS4 share violated Sony Entertainment Network Guidelines.

This is what happens when you hit “I Agree” without reading the terms and conditions. Ubisoft has confirmed that it will be removing the genitalia from Watch Dogs 2.
