Up to three times the CEO of Quantic Dream has rectified a controversial tweet in which he dealt with the current political-social crisis in the United States due to the George Floyd case . Guillaume de Fondaumière used social media to talk about the situation and sneak a pill talking about the studio’s latest and most successful video game, Detroit: Become Human, a gesture that has angered many fans.
After deleting the first tweet criticizing Detroit itself and the use of “all lives matter” instead of “all black lives matter”, he tried again on his personal account: “Racism, in any form expression, is shameful, stupid and must be fought, everywhere and always. Black lives matter. We are all the same, regardless of skin color, religious beliefs, sex, sexual orientation, or others. Detroit Become Human is about just about it. “
After deleting the first two tweets despite the multiple interactions of one and the other , the third was defeated, and the CEO removed the inappropriate mention of Detroit to underline his message “on and off Twitter” but it was too late for Guillaume de Fondaumière: The tweet horde did not hesitate to reproach him for the two previous tweets and the unethicality of using the George Floyd case to talk about his latest video game.
Unlike the Quantic Dream, many other companies have shown greater sensitivity to the political-social climate that exists in the United States today. He has highlighted the case of the cancellation of the presentation of the PS5 games, the postponement of the presentation of Madden NFL 21, or the messages of support for the fight against racism in the United States by Naughty Dog, Activision or Riot Games.
