Deep Silver Apologizes for ‘Gruesome Statue’ in Zombie Bait Edition

Posted by at 2:26 pm on January 15, 2013


After universal disgusted from customers and the general Internet alike over the foot-tall statue of a mutilated human torso in a bikini included with the Europe/Australian Dead Island Riptide Zombie Bait Edition, game maker Deep Silver issued an apology today through its Twitter account.

The company said the statue was inspired by the violence in the game: “a decision was made to include a gruesome statue of a zombie torso, which was cut up like many of our fans had done to the undead enemies in the original Dead Island.”

Deep Silver said it “sincerely regret[s] this choice,” and that it is “committed to making sure this will never happen again,” which is as simple as not doing it again.

At the same time, the apology note makes no mention of pulling or replacing the offending item from the Zombie Bait Edition.
