"Now we'll probably just offend everybody."

In a move to avoid offending gamers and customers — and probably just because it’s sort of the right thing to do — Victory Games will be changing the makeup of the upcoming Command & Conquer‘s main enemies to not just be a big mishmash of Middle-Eastern-looking soldiers.
“This is actually a pretty big change for the game,” Victory’s Tim Morten said to Polygon. “Anyone who knows this series will know the Global Liberation Army. But at the studio we had a bad reaction from people saying it was pretty offensive to have Middle-Eastern characters as militants.”
The new Global Liberation Army is now made up of at least five different races.
“Now we’ll probably just offend everybody,” Morten concluded.
