Sega to Russians: We ‘Regret Any Offense’ Over Company of Heroes 2

Game Front: "Two days after the sale of Company of Heroes 2 was put on hold in Russia, SEGA and Relic Entertainment have issued a joint statement in an attempt to quell the anger stemming from the game’s seemingly controversial content." (Company of Heroes 2, PC)

Some people are so sensitive over a game. How do they survive their daily lives if a game can cause such a mess to them

So, on one side we have a game. Interactive entertainment inspired by reality, making mechanics of pretty damn ruthless war decisions. This is quite strong and shocking, no doubt here.
On the other side we have Russian government which has murdered hundreds of thousands bloodthirsty unarmed civilians, women and children because they didn't accept the agressor's superiority, deemed victims of aggression as evil, nuked thousands of own people just to see how it'll affect them, and it's track of propaganda and bollocks is easily traceable up to this day.

Sorry, I'll stick with the game. It's nowhere as false as the government.

I'm disagreeing because there is a very large amount of historical accuracy put into the game...

The problem is that Relic cherry picked some of the most atrocious and darkest parts concerning Russia's part in the war.

Imagine how much of an outcry there would be if a game accurately depicted American soldiers mass murdering entire Vietnamese villages (including women and children) because they all "might" have been Vietcong... and you have to directly partake in the killings as part of the game.

That's kind of how Russian authorities feel about this game, though their atrocities that were depicted in the game may not be as heinous as what some American soldiers were ordered to do in Vietnam.

Real or fake, one should be wary of offending people in a video game, especially if they were being lazy or careless in terms of dialogue or story element.

But I'm more interested as to why this is offensive if they were under orders to do what they did.

@Pixelsword,

Some people are ashamed about what their countrymen were ordered to do. In fact, many countries have gone to great extents, much to the resentment of the victims, to erase such parts of history from their children's history books.

Russia needs to calm down and this game would of never been made if they sneak tails didn't steal nuclear bomb stuff from America etc. and then chernoble happened. see its bad to steal don't do it if yo don't know what the bleep your doing.

No, this game would never have been made if Stalin wasn't as ruthless and evil as Hitler was. The only reason why the Allies joined with Russia is because Stalin went back on his "non-agresssion pack" with Hitler.

Few people pay attention to the fact that with Nazi Germany's help Russia invaded Romania, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Finland.

They shouldn't be apologizing to the 5 Russians who found it offensive.
