Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 Brutal War Crimes Bosnia trailer doesn’t tread the path of sensitivity


City Interactive have released a new trailer for their action game, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2. It reveals that one of the settings you’ll be playing through in the singleplayer is Sarajevo during the 1992 – 1995 Bosnian War.

The trailer raises some concerns about how Sniper: Ghost Warrior is going to approach the still-controversial and sensitive events of the Balkan wars.

Sniper:Ghost Warrior 2 puts you in the shoes ofCaptain Cole Anderson, a private security consultant, who runs missions in Sarajevo, Burma, and Tibet. The above trailer is an example of his work in the Sarajevo during the Bosnian war: abrutal, complex war in which the sides and forces at work weren’t clearly defined and horrendous acts of violencewere committed by many parties.

That doesn’t come across in City Interactive’s trailer. It seems thatthe violence of a real world conflict is being usedsimply as abackdrop for a shooter.

We’ve contacted City Interactive to try and find out about their position on the game’s setting.
