Favela map removed from MW2

Recommended Posts

T1Famous    4
Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer map Favela has been taken offline following complaints from Muslim players, who discovered offensive imagery contained within one of the map's rooms almost three years after the game's release.

According to Kotaku, two paintings found in one of the map's bathrooms contained a quote attributed to the Prophet Muhammad, which reads: "Allah is beautiful and He loves beauty."

Why would they put something like that there in the first place? It's unfortunate that they had to remove the map but it's only temporary. They're going to remove the textures in MW2 and MW3 with separate title updates.

It shouldn't have been there in the first place.

Funny that nobody asked for the removal of the Christ the Redeemer statue, thied to javelin it a couple of times when playing the level...rofl

Don?t get me wrong, I?m Brazilian, family is mostly Catholic but the level of non-sense the so called "religious people" are bringing up recently is upsetting me greatly; some people even question if I?m an atheist to what I say no "but I decided to talk to God directly as his representatives down here are a lot to be desired"...

Back on the game, I guess this will not affect non-official servers around the planet, will it...

Surprising nobody noticed this sooner. That game has been out for almost 3 years now.

They removed the entire map instead of altering a tiny piece of it? Seems a bit lazy.

Islam :rolleyes:

I guess Arab terrorists will no longer be part of games. Because it's insulting Islam. :rolleyes:

then next time tell the developers not to include any religious imagery. they, as well as everyone in the world knows that religion is a touchy topic.

Why are muslums people who are supposedly so religious that this being in a game bothers them, yet the game itself is totally acceptable to them to begin with?

A game featuring guys going on rampages killing people by the dozens. Totally okay.

A religious phrase appearing in said game. Totally not okay.

:huh:
