Deep Silver ships controversial Dead Island Riptide statue despite apologies
Earlier this year, Deep Silver announced that the Dead Island Riptide Zombie Bait Edition for the Xbox 360 will be featuring a limbless and headless statue with a sizeable bust. It was met with a considerable amount of outrage from the media and Deep Silver was forced to apologize for it.
“We sincerely regret this choice and are committed to making sure this will never happen again,” a Deep Silver spokesperson said back in January.
However, Deep Silver has decided to go ahead and release the controversial statue anyway completely contradicting their previous apology.
There have already been numerous reports from people all over the internet receiving the Zombie Edition statue. “An extremely limited quantity of the Zombie Bait edition has been made available to some retailers for those customers who wish to purchase it,” said Koch Media, parent company of Deep Silver, in a statement at CNet.
