EA's social justice-themed Battlefield V is doing so poorly on the charts that the game went on sale for half off just days after release.
From Metro, "Battlefield V sales down 63% on Battlefield 1 in UK retail charts":
EA's new Battlefield game has had an unimpressive start in the new UK top 40, as Black Friday casts its shadow over the charts.Just a couple weeks after the game was released for purchase it's gone on sale at Target for half off at $30 for Xbox and PS4:
The game had a terrible launch which spawned the hashtag #NotMyBattlefield after the trailer featured a woman with a hook hand fighting in frontline combat in WW2.
Gamers shared memes like this all over social media:
The games' design director, Alan Kertz, who describes himself as as "liberal" and "feminist," justified the move by saying he didn't want to tell his daughter she can't make a character that looks like her "because you're a girl."
Needless to say, it didn't go over very well.
