Mexican Officials Lobbying For Call of Juarez: The Cartel Ban

Earlier in the month Ubisoft revealed that a new Call of Juarez title was being developed, and that instead of going back into the past, it would be set in the present. This is a decision which has upset Mexican officials.

They claim that the decision will trivilise the area's very real problems, which saw around 6,000 people killed between 2009 and 2010.

Speaking on behalf of the Chihuahua state, Ricardo Boone Salmon said: "It is true there is a serious crime situation, which we are not trying to hide. But we also should not expose children to this kind of scenarios so that they are going to grow up with this kind of image and lack of values."

They will attempt to ban the game from release in Mexico.
