Ubisoft responds to PETA's whaling complaint
Ubsioft has responded to PETA's criticism of Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, saying that it doesn't condone whaling or, for that matter, piracy
Earlier this week, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals had a go at Ubisoft over the fact that Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag contained cruelty to animals. PETA took issue with the fact the pirate-themed game allows players to harpoon whales, calling it ‘disgraceful’.
This isn't the first time PETA has waded in against the gaming industry. The organisation previously attacked Pokemon for depicting scenes of cruelty to animals. Funnily enough they haven't spoken out against Ubisoft's last open world game, Far Cry 3, which allows players to hunt and kill animals and turn them into gun and grenade-holding bandoliers.
