It is rather cack-handed marketing. Is there a specific 'apartheid' controversy, or is it just that the game includes segregation? I'm in favour of games tackling such issues even if the result is likely to be a bit of a caricature.

The controversy is or was that they were calling it "apartheid" which stands for a unique kind of segregation and lots of injustice and suffering in South Africa.
I don't think that anyone had a problem with the segregation theme per se (many games/RPGs had those in the past) but only with using the term apartheid which probably should not be tampered with in this way.

Which I think is much hand wringing over nothing anyway. Apartheid is simply the Dutch word for segregation, so it being called Apartheid in South Africa isn't because of some kind of special feeling or the idea that the struggle there was worse than elsewhere, that's just what it's called in Dutch, and thus what it's called in Afrikaans. (which is basically a dialect of Dutch.)

So while it's weird that people in the US would call the Aug segregation "apartheid", the whining over how that diminishes the struggle in south africa is just ugh. There must be an entire segment of the population now that literally does nothing else but find shit to be offended about on the internet.
