Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad, the mobile game that co-opted BLM imagery, is closing

Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad got off to a rough start in 2020. First, it teased and then disappointed the hell out of Splinter Cell fans by bringing back Sam Fisher—not in the new Splinter Cell game that people have been demanding for years, but as a character in a mobile tactics game. Then it decided to use a raised fist as a symbol for the game’s villains, a faceless, evil cabal hiding behind protesters demanding social and economic justice, a decision that ultimately led to an apology for the “insensitive and harmful” use of imagery related to historically important movements including Black Lives Matter.

And after all that trouble, the game didn’t even make it a year: Ubisoft announced today that it has halted development of the game, and that the servers will shut down on October 4.
