It looks like all those people that kept calling Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War “Based” and “red-pilled” are now eating crow because Activision and Treyarch have censored themselves to lick up all of China’s testicular secretions from the filthy ground. As of recent, the official Call of Duty YouTube channel released a cut trailer of the official Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War video, and it’s missing the Tiananmen Square footage given that China banned the trailer for potentially provoking “public grievances.”
What’s sad is that we predicted that this nonsense would surface through a bait-and-switch tactic by Activision and Treyarch. However, the hypocritical duo is jumping the gun and showing their true colors way before the August 26th reveal trailer.
With that said, you can check out the original trailer that Activision and Treyarch sent out to publication outlets like IGN, which shows the intended content in full as seen at the 1:05 mark:
After the video went live on August 19th and China was able to view the video, many Chinese gamers were split on the trailer, given that it showcased footage of Tiananmen Square as per website hk.appledaily.com.
Before diving into what authorities had to say about the situation in China, the short story is that Activision and Treyarch quickly released a cut version of the trailer on August 21st to appease their Chinese overlords and thus the following trailer was birthed:
Now time for the long story, publication site hk.appledaily.com reports that Mainland Chinese netizens criticized the publisher and developer for “deliberately hinting at certain ideologies” and using “politics to influence games.”
The website later highlights that mainland authorities “quickly blocked the video trailer.” Additionally, Senior Current Affairs Commentator Liu Ruishao believes that authorities are worried that the image in the trailer will “remind the public of the situation before June 4th” and “provoke public grievances,” so it must be removed while the video is in an “embryonic stage.”
It was said once here and it will be said again, this game is [current year] agitprop disguised in “conservative” or “right-wing” clothing to own the “libs” and make them “cry.” In other words, it’s just another way to get wayward people to accept social justice propaganda since it’s a Trojan Horse holding all sorts of disingenuous and dishonest narratives.
In addition to the above, this game is aimed at young-minded males between the ages of 11 through 37 that may be dabbling into self-research and discovering other talking points besides left-wing news outlets. Moreover, this game will subvert their expectations with tired talking points that were dominant during the 2014 and 2015 days (like gamers are dead) that have been turned into [current year] products.
Lastly, more info on Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War will surface on August 26th, 2020.
