Security Firm Blackwater Makes A Killing On Xbox War Game Where Players Are Mercenaries
Plans to launch a video game where players take the role of a mercenary for controversial U.S. security firm Blackwater have provoked outrage.
The company, accused of some of the worst human rights violations of the Iraq war, has teamed up with games company 505 studios to publish the game.
It has been developed under licence from Erik Prince, the Blackwater founder, who won more than $1billion in contracts from the Bush administration for security work in Iraq.
