Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is set to launch late this year and fans are excited about the game. With the game featuring more than 3 hours of cutscenes, there is no doubt that the upcoming sequel will be bigger and better than the last one.
However, the German and Polish versions of Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus will be a bit different as they will not feature Swastikas symbol in the game. It is interesting to note that in German version it makes sense but, the Polish version of the game not so much.
However, in a statement from the PR Manage has clarified that while Polish law does not prohibit the use of Swastikas symbol as German Law does but, the studio decided to not include it in the marketing material. Also, the game will not be censored in any way.
Also, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus will not be the first game to launch later this year and avoid Swastikas as it will also be missing from Call of Duty: WWII multiplayer.
Sledgehammer’s co-founder Michael Condrey has explained that Swastikas will be featured in Call of Duty: WWII single-player campaign but, not in multiplayer because they want to be respectful of the local customs around the world.
In our global community of multiplayer and zombies players, we’ve chosen deliberately not to include that. We want the community to play together. We want to be respectful of local customs and laws around the world. And frankly, it’s a dark symbol with a lot of emotion behind it – we don’t feel matches our multiplayer experience.
Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is a first-person action shooter in development at Machine Games and is scheduled to launch on October 27, 2017, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
