Canadians take offense to G.R.A.W.

The Canadian newspaper Ottawa Citizen ran an article about the assassination of the Prime Minister of Canada in Tom Clancy’s new Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter. The game starts at a summit meeting in Mexico with The U.S. President, the Mexican President and the Prime Minister of Canada shortly after the Prime Minister gets assassinated and the game goes from there. In the article Adrian Fernandez-Lacey, a senior coordinator for Ubisoft in France, says

The other leaders had to live to keep the game’s tension high: Mexico’s president needed to hang around to allow conflict with the rebels, while the U.S. president had remain alive because the elite group of soldiers charged with the rescue are American.

“Basically, for the game, the Canadian guy was the only one that we could actually sacrifice in the story,” he said. “We weren’t being malicious or anything like that.”

It looks like Canada gets the short end of the stick again but its alright because G.R.A.W. has sold almost 50,000 units across Canada since its March 9 release.  Don’t worry its just a fictitious game and hopefully none of those events ever actually take place.
