EA: Against Women In Battlefield V? Don’t Buy Our Game

EA's chief design officer has a message for the "uneducated" masses, if you don't like the idea of having women in Battlefield V: accept it or don't buy the game. I guess we'll see soon enough if this backfires or not.

These are people who are uneducated—they don't understand that this is a plausible scenario, and listen: this is a game. And today gaming is gender-diverse, like it hasn't been before. There are a lot of female people who want to play, and male players who want to play as a badass [woman]. And we don't take any flak. We stand up for the cause, because I think those people who don't understand it, well, you have two choices: either accept it or don't buy the game. I'm fine with either or. It's just not ok.
