After a Watch Dogs 2 PlayStation 4 player “accidentally blew up a few women in a back alley with a gas pipe”, he noticed one of the character models was sporting a fully-rendered vagina. What it was doing in the game in the first place, and why is was exposed is anyone’s guess.
For obvious reasons, the player immediately took a picture of the anomaly through the in-game phone, and posted it on Twitter (NSFW) and in a Watch Dogs 2 early release thread. Shortly after, the poster’s PSN account has suspended for sharing “content of an adult or sexual nature.” Yikes.
The poster shared this unfortunate chain of event on NeoGAF, and since then the ban has been lifted. However, the whole ordeal is kind of absurd. Sharing an in-game image through an in-game tool shouldn’t be punished, especially since it was shared of a Twitter, which provides a “sensitive material” warning.
Ubisoft has addressed the incident, saying: “While Watch Dogs 2 is a mature-rated game, we apologize and will update this NPC model to make it more consistent with other NPC models in the game in a patch to be released this week. We also are working with our first-party partners to ensure that players can continue to play and share all content from the game within the bounds of the first parties’ respective codes of conduct.”
So once the patch is released, Watch Dogs 2 will be a mature game sans crotchless panites. Ubisoft has yet to comment on what they were doing there in the first place.
