Hitman 2 & Sikhs Follow-up

The Hitman 2 front page (thanks Boba Fart) now has a link to a pop-up "corporate statement" following up on the recent uproar concerning the use and treatment of Sikh and Dalit imagery in the hired assassination sequel (story), and The Sikh Coalition Website has likewise been updated to reflect their satisfaction with this outcome. Here is a portion of the statement from Eidos:

In recognition of the concerns and sensitivities which have been raised, Eidos and the developers, IO Interactive, have responded in both a socially and commercially responsible manner by:

  • removing from the Hitman 2 website all relevant images and content;
  • taking steps to amend the game on all existing platforms; and
  • adapting the next edition of the game due out for the GameCube platform.

Eidos and IO Interactive would like to stress that no offence was intended but would like to apologise to the Sikh community and other persons for any offence taken.
