EA Takes Out the Taliban

Following protests about the inclusion of the option to play as Taliban insurgents in their upcoming game, Medal of Honor, Electronic Arts (EA) have surgically removed the entire terrorist organization.

In a report from Ars Technica, EA published the following statement:

However, we have also received feedback from friends and families of fallen soldiers who have expressed concern over the inclusion of the Taliban in the multiplayer portion of our game. This is a very important voice to the Medal of Honor team. This is a voice that has earned the right to be listened to. It is a voice that we care deeply about. Because of this, and because the heartbeat of Medal of Honor has always resided in the reverence for American and Allied soldiers, we have decided to rename the opposing team in Medal of Honor multiplayer from Taliban to Opposing Force.

MBC first reported on this in its broadcast on 27th August, 2010.
