And the most hilarious part? Patrick Söderlund has announced he will leave EA by the end of the year. After more or less publicly telling gamers to go fuck themselves if they objected to the game. For reference, that was the guy who said:

On the [women] in Battlefield, this is something that the development team pushed. Battlefield V is a lot about the unseen, the untold, the unplayed. The common perception is that there were no women in World War II. There were a ton of women who both fought in World War II and partook in the war.

These are people who are uneducated—they don’t understand that this is a plausible scenario and listen: this is a game. And today gaming is gender-divers, like it hasn’t been before. There are a lot of female people who want to play, and male players who want to play as a badass [woman].

And we don’t take any flak. We stand up for the cause, because I think those people who don’t understand it, well, you have two choices: either accept it or don’t buy the game. I’m fine with either or. It’s just not ok.

Well, that's that, I guess. It's almost like shitting on your own audience is going to curb sales. Then again, there was that entire mess with that other game.

There were a ton of women who both fought in World War II and partook in the war.

There were also a ton of women who willingly spread their legs for the invading armies. Why didn't they depict those whores in their game? I'd buy it. I'm sure it would sell 100 gorillion copies. Just imagine, you win the map and you get to fuck a French cunt. Failing sales and pre orders is what happens when you narrow your game design decisions to follow a shit ideology that no one wants.

Many women did contribute to the war, they did not fight in it they stepped up back home taking up jobs to support the men making ammo to be sent to them filling roles to keep the country going while the men were away. I would never say the women didn't help with the war but they did not fight the war.

That.... that's a fucking awesome idea.

BRB making gaem. Don't like my depiction of French cunts, don't buy it, idc either way.

If you wanna make a game like that, then you need to hire a bunch of Asians and set up your development studio in Asia.

If you do that in the west, the feminists will try their best to ruin your life.

It's the way they said it and their motives behind it that rubbed gamers the wrong way.

I mean there's no gamers that complained about females in Valkyria Chronicles even when it's supposed to depict WW 2 and shit (or female soldiers in other japanese war games) because it is clear that the devs aren't trying to push cultural marxist propaganda.

If you sound like a hardcore SJW libtard then you are bound to piss many sane people off. Like I said, the motives behind doing certain design decision matters, and people are not so stupid to not be able to see that. It is not a secret anymore that many people, including gamers, are annoyed with the whole SJW virtue signaling movement.
