SMITE suspends 5,000 accounts due to racist chat


The chat box of an MMO was never meant to be a safe haven for racists, but with the protests across the US calling for racial equality after the murder of George Floyd, reeling back racist behavior in-game is more important than ever. With that in mind, the developers of SMITE have put racists who play their game on notice, suspending 5,000 accounts for racism after a full chat log review.

In addition to the mass suspension, the tweet also announced that new tech has been implemented to help the team find and punish racist actions more easily. “We still have work to do and are committed to ensuring SMITE is a hate-free environment,” closes the tweet.
