Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Causing Controversy Over Tweet

Wolfenstein II Marketing Takes a Not-So-Subtle Stance Against Real World Controversy

Wolfenstein II Marketing Takes a Not-So-Subtle Stance Against Real World Controversy

"In Wolfenstein's case, it's pure coincidence that Nazis are marching in the streets of America this year", he concluded.

"[In the game] freeing America is the first step to freeing the world, so the idea of #NoMoreNazis in America is, in fact, what the entire game (and franchise) is about". However, others on Reddit consider the Tweet from Bethesda a mere publicity stunt to elevate the hype surrounding the game before its release on October 27.

The creators of the upcoming video game, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, have responded to claims that the title references current politics and indicts President Trump for his supposed association with the alt-right - a baseless claim often touted by the liberal media. We aren't going to shy away from what the game is about.

Bethesda's VP for PR and marketing, Pete Hines, defends Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus' anti-nazi message.

The Shield Is Back and Already Has a TLC Match
Since The Shield's breakup in 2014, Reigns, Ambrose, and Rollins have been mostly content to pursue their singles careers. As noted, RAW will also feature Cesaro and Sheamus on MizTV with WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz .

Apparently, there are a bunch of people getting upset over a tweet made by the "Wolfenstein" Twitter page a couple days ago in regards to next installment of the franchise, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. You could say, fighting Nazis is a staple for the franchise.

Some fear this game will inspire further clashes between neo-Nazi groups and their opposition.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus will take place in an alternate timeline where Nazis won the Second World War and, as a result, have invaded the U.S. in order to bolster their fascist regime. We don't feel it's a reach for us to say Nazis are bad and un-American, and we're not anxious about being on the right side of history here.

He explained that the game's American setting was established when the first 2014 game was still in early development, when the team was planning it out as a trilogy. The studio faced the challenging mission of convincing all those angry folks who have condemned the game as promoting violence, Nazi-killing language, and accused Bethesda of creating an ad that refers to the political situation in the United States, that these arguments are groundless.

Trump also is mulling over declaring Iran's security force, the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp, a terrorist organization. Trump said in September that recent IRGC missile tests illustrated the weakness of the nuclear deal.

"At the time none of us expected that the game would be seen as a comment on current issues, but here we are".

He added that "if we get to make the third one-once we introduce Mecha-Hitler, you can't go up from there". This fictional setting of Nazi soldiers on the USA streets is awfully familiar to real-life current events as of late.

"People who are against freeing the world from the hate and murder of a Nazi regime probably aren't interested in playing Wolfenstein", he said.

We'll see if the politically-motivated marketing campaign pays off for them when Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus launches on October 27th, for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC, and next year for the Nintendo Switch.
