Ubisoft is removing a ‘controversial’ UK journalist from Watch Dogs: Legion

Two in-game podcasts in Watch Dogs: Legion that feature British journalist Helen Lewis will be removed as a result of “controversial” statements she’s made in the past. Ubisoft said that it was not made aware of Lewis’ previous statements until after development of the game was complete.

“Neither Ubisoft nor the game reflect this journalist’s viewpoints,” Ubisoft said in a statement. “The development team worked with an external producer to select speaker profiles for these podcasts and were not aware of the controversy at the time of booking or recording.
