The thing about making a large game with lots of moving parts is, well, sometimes you wind up signing off on something you don’t want in your game. Case in point: The Division 2 has had to remove a bit of in-game graffiti of a cop eating a donut. That seems entirely innocent and unworthy of removal… until you learn that this in-game graffiti had the officer’s badge number spelling out a homophobic slur.
Obviously, whoever did this was counting on people eventually finding the reference, although it took a few weeks from the official release of the game before someone did. Ubisoft has apologized for the image making it to the live game and has stated that the company will be examining its content review policies to avoid this happening again in the future. The real tragedy here is arguably that someone decided to add that into the game in the first place, but at least the issue is being addressed now.
