Ubisoft, the game studio behind upcoming title 'Tom Clancy's The Division 2', has apologized for an email that made light of the U.S. government shutdown that ended a week ago. From a report: Ubisoft sent out a marketing email for The Division 2 earlier Thursday which prompted a quick retraction. The email was an invitation to the game's private beta, with the subject line: 'Come see what a real government shutdown looks like in the Private Beta'.
Not long after the email was issued, the publisher sent a retraction. 'A marketing email promoting Tom Clancy's The Division 2 was sent in error today. This was a grave breakdown in process and we apologize for this error and the offensive subject line of the email. We recognize the very real impact of the United States government shut down on thousands of people and did not intend to make light of the situation.'
