Bolivia Complains About Its Portrayal In Video Game

Apparently the Bolivian government has lodged a formal complaint with the the French embassy about the way it was portrayed in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands. Seriously folks, you can't make stuff like this up.

The Bolivian government has filed a formal complaint with the French embassy about a video game produced by a French company that portrays the South American country as an area controlled by drug traffickers, authorities said. The game, "Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands," was produced by France-based Ubisoft Entertainment SA and is set to be officially launched next week. The game's beta version has been downloaded by 6.8 million users, according to Ubisoft. "We have the standing to do it (take legal action), but at first we prefer to go the route of diplomatic negotiation," Romero said.
