Latest Wolfenstein pulled from German store shelves

Sep 22 // Jim Sterling    @JimSterling

Yep, Germany's at it again! Despite being approved for release in the oppressive Nanny-state, it seems that the German version of Wolfenstein has now been recalled, with Activision pulling the Raven-developed game from store shelves.

No reason has been given for the recall, but it's strongly believed that the use of Swastikas and related National Socialist imagery is the cause of the fuss. Because of course, it's much better for Germany to essentially deny the Holocaust than sell a videogame with a few Swastikas in it. Maybe hiding Nazi iconography will make people forget that the German government has been acting like the Third Reich more and more lately. 

Germany jumped the shark with its videogame banning years ago. This nonsense really needs to end.
