“Batman: The Enemy Within” removes image of assassinated Russian diplomat
At the end of last year there was a big event that shocked the world, and this was the murder of the Russian ambassador in Turkey, Andrei Karlov, who held a press conference in a gallery and was shot by a Turkish police officer, Mevlut Altintas .
In the scenario of the game we can appreciate that Batman is investigating a robbery in a bank of the Gothic City, and in the whole process begins to study the recordings of the security cameras. It is at this point that we can see that the deceased body of a guard in front of a vault, but the truth is that the body is no more than a retouched variant of one of the many pictures that were taken from the terrorist attack in the one that Andréi Karlov was assassinated.
Russia’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zajárova said they were doing everything possible to remove the photo from the ambassador of the video game.
They said it and they succeeded, because after the viralization and all the complaints that rained on the game, the image has been completely removed. Telltale also issued a statement stating that they regret having included the image of Karlov and further state that they are taking appropriate actions internally to ensure that their high standards of production and quality are maintained.
