EA-"EA is not working with Anita Sarkeesian on development of Mirror’s Edge" in response to petition

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Electronic Arts gave a rather terse response to the "Remove Anita Sarkeesian from Mirror's Edge 2 game development" petition today

Plain text 

 

This petition is based on inaccurate information. EA is not working with Anita Sarkeesian on development of Mirror’s Edge.

 

While it is a relief to me, and leaves many questions about who started these rumors, it is notable that some are still not convinced, and some fear this means she may be involved in some other project.

I personally think that is a bit of over-reaction to EA's statement, but that's just my opinion. 


muh specs 

Gaming and HTPC (reparations)- ASUS 1080, MSI X99A SLI Plus, 5820k- 4.5GHz @ 1.25v, asetek based 360mm AIO, RM 1000x, 16GB memory, 750D with front USB 2.0 replaced with 3.0  ports, 2 250GB 850 EVOs in Raid 0 (why not, only has games on it), some hard drives

Where did people come up with the idea that EA is working with her?

 

Also yes, that response is fairly extreme but I'm not surprised by it.

Still think it's a stupid petition, even if the rumors were true.

 

I tried finding where the rumors started and all I found was some blog on Destructoid from 2 years ago.

I'm wanting to say a female rep from DICE announced it in 2012, but now I cannot find a single source on it since every Google result is turning up the stupid petition.

As long as battlefront 3 is released EA can count on my money for at least one of their products...

 

and honestly controls for mirror's edge are pretty simple. there's a move analog stick and a "use/everything else" button.

Well i think the point is that she totally fucked up and said something incredibly sexist, that women need a special control scheme so the game is easier for them...

Apparently Anita needed a bigger, longer "joy"stick for controlling "movement."

Anyone who has a sister hates the fact that his sister isn't Kasugano Sora.
Anyone who does not have a sister hates the fact that Kasugano Sora isn't his sister.
I'm not insulting anyone; I'm just being condescending. There is a difference, you see...
