has a follow-up reporting that upcoming military shooter reboot Medal of Honor
will not be sold on U.S. military bases, in spite of the recent announcement
that the opposing force will no longer be referred to as the Taliban. The Taliban label sparked controversy, and was one of the reasons it was originally announced the game would not be sold in U.S. bases
, but a spokesperson told them the name change is not inspiring a policy change. "Out of respect to those touched by the ongoing, real-life events presented as a game, Exchanges will not be carrying this product," Army & Air Force Exchange Service Commander Maj. Gen. Bruce Casella told Kotaku. "While we regret any inconvenience this may cause, our position is consistent with the direction stated a month ago. I expect the military families who are authorized to shop the Exchange are aware, and understanding, of the decision not to carry this particular offering."
