The War Z executive producer Sergey Titov has been caught doing a bad thing. He’s either called campers “f*ggots” or stated that homosexuals camp. I’m not sure yet which it was, but I do know that it’s not exactly the kind of thing executive producers are supposed to say.
I’m also not quite sure why a grown man would write something like that in a forum post. Needless to say many people were a bit upset by it, the forum post has since then been updated (edited) and an apology issued. The original post can be seen right over here.
After Titov expressed himself by saying the following in the post:
“I’m trying to play at least couple hours a day every single day. Getting killed a lot, but 80 percent of all kills are ‘honest.’ I’m just being careless. I’m not trying to hide. 20 percent are sh***y kills by f**got’s who’s spawn camping,” a representative from the game’s press team VIM Global Consulting told Gamespot that Titiv has no prejudice against homosexuals.
“Knowing Sergey, I can say with confidence that he has no prejudice against homosexuals; just a poor and inappropriate choice of words.”
Titov’s apology has been received well by War Z players.
What are your thoughts on this? Are developers allowed to be human and make mistakes or is it unacceptable that they would act so irresponsibly?
