Concerned about trivialization; Hindus are urging French video game publisher Ubisoft to depict Hindu deities, temples, traditions, terminology and concepts with respect and accuracy in upcoming video-game “Beyond Good and Evil 2”.
In this action-adventure video game to be published by Ubisoft, Hinduism is reportedly going to play a pivotal role in the narrative, with images and references related to Hinduism, while it explores Ganesha City named after highly revered Hindu deity Lord Ganesha.
Ubisoft claims to be “a leading creator, publisher and distributor of interactive entertainment and services, with a rich portfolio of world-renowned brands, including Assassin’s Creed”. For the 2017-18 fiscal year, it reportedly generated sales of €1,732 million. Yves Guillemot is CEO of Ubisoft, launched in 1986 and headquartered in the Paris suburb Montreuil, whose tagline is “Outstanding games made by exceptional humans”.
