Relatives of the people affected by the 7/7 suicide attacks in July 2005, which killed more than 50 people and injured another 700, demanded for a ban on Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, a report in Daily Mail said.
The Action game which will feature explosions and scenes from the destruction on the London Tube and Parliament will release later this year in November.
The game has not yet received an age limit and depicts soldiers scouting the streets of London with heavy artillery and machine guns while bombs explode and buildings crumble in the background. The Big Ben and the famous London buses have also been portrayed in the game.
Vivienne Pattison, spokesperson for a campaign group, Mediawatch UK, told Daily Mail that people in Britain are concerned as the game is hyper-real and takes place in a background everybody is familiar with and it has a clear proof of the shocking 7/7 incident being used to churn out money.
One particular shot in the game shows an armed soldier riding a truck in front of the tube carriage causing the tube to derail which later explodes. Apart from the UK, the game also takes place in various locations like America, France and Germany.
Activision, the developers of the game, said Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is an action game which is purely fictional and aimed at mature adults, set in World War three arena. The scenes depicted in the game are entirely fictional and does not mean to reconstruct any historical events, they insist.
The game currently can be pre-ordered and has a voiceover saying, “It doesn't take the most powerful nations on earth to create the next global conflict, just the will of a single man”.
