Ubisoft Changing Tom Clancy Mobile Game Intro After Backlash

Ubisoft is apologizing for including a symbol showing as raised black fist in the Cinematic Intro for Tom Clancy's Elite Squad, a new mobile game. The intro depicts worldwide protests that are actually being manipulated by a secret evil organization called Umbra, and the raised fist symbol is being widely interpreted as an implication that the Black Lives Matter movement is part of some cynical conspiracy. The backlash to this includes a tweet from one of the game's developers: "Angry about the use of the black power fist here. I worked on the character bios and was informed that UMBRA is supposed to be a James Bond villain organisation, not something that looks like what the q conspiracy people think is happening. Irresponsibly bad optics." Ubisoft's response to the outcry is to say "any resemblance to images associated with the Black Lives Matter movement is coincidental," but in this tweet they promise to quickly update the game to remove the symbol:
Imagery that appeared in the opening video sequence of Tom Clancy's Elite Squad featuring a 'raised fist' was insensitive and harmful in both its inclusion and how it was portrayed. We have listened to and appreciate the players and the broader community who pointed it out and we apologize. This raised fist imagery will be removed in the next title update this Tuesday, September 1 on Android and as soon as possible on iOS.
