Games based on wars have been making the news for all the wrong reasons recently, as people are upset about the conflicts that are depicted.
The latest Call of Duty, being developed by Treyarch has chosen to look at the Cold War setting, another potentially touchy area, but Josh Olin from Treyarch believes "there's always somebody who is offended by our games, whether it's making a game where you kill imperial Japanese soldiers or you're making a game where Russian soldiers are dying. Any era has this potential to offend somebody."
He went on to say "But we don't look at it like that. We look at it as we're making a game. We're making an entertainment product that is supposed to be fun, it's supposed to be entertaining for players. And if you don't like it then don't play it."
Call of Duty: Black Ops is scheduled for release on the 9th of November, 2010 on all major platforms.
