PayPal Will No Longer Let You Buy Active Shooter With Their Wallet

Posted by at 11:29 am on June 21, 2018

Active Shooter is a tactical FPS designed to simulate school shootings, which has been the subject of plenty of controversy. As of today, it can no longer be purchased via PayPal.

The Associated Press reports that PayPal has closed the account of publisher Acid Software, barring it from one of the most popular means of online payment.

“PayPal has a longstanding, well-defined and consistently enforced Acceptable Use Policy, and regardless of the individual or organization in question, we work to ensure that our services are not used to accept payments for activities that promote violence,” PayPal said in a statement to AP. 

Acid Software confirmed the closure on Twitter, adding hashtags “QuitCensoringUs,” “FreedomOfExpression,” and “WeWillBeBack.” The studio has also removed the option to purchase Active Shooter on its own site, at least for now. Sadly, a free demo is still available.
