Splinter Cell: Blacklist - Developer Cuts Torture Scene

When Ubisoft Toronto showcased Splinter Cell: Blacklist at E3 last year there was a lot to love about the game. Unfortunately, a lot of people found something to hate as well. The infamous torture scene that was showcased within the demo gathered quite a bit of controversy. For better or worse, Ubisoft has decided to remove the scene from the game.

The story is too old to be commented.

This is so stupid, I mean I understand the developer wanting to please the naysayers, but there are SO SO many worse scenes in video games than that little torture scene. There was a scene in Warfighter that tops that ten fold.

I know what part you are taking about. It was pretty brutal.

Agreed. Modern Warfare can shoot up an airport but a torture scene is too risky?

I don't think they needed to cut it outright. If there's enough justification and context for that scene in the full game, which I'm guessing there would have been, then I don't see a huge problem.

Maybe it was a wrong move to showcase that part during the E3 demo. Stripped of any additional context and put on the 'showoff pedestal' that is E3, it may have looked to some people like a shameless attempt at shock value by Ubisoft, which I think gives off the wrong impression.

Just my two cents.

I had no problem with this scene at all. You see scenes like this in movies and TV shows all the time so when will games grow up ?

I've seen crazier things on Criminal Minds and that is on T.V every Tuesday at 9 pm.

That was not torture, but a simple interrogation tactic used in real life by all Government military . Though they will deny it. Come ubisoft grow a set & put it back in the game besides this is a M rated game.
