Developers Distinguish From Publisher Tripwire After Boss Said He Was “Proud” That Texas’ Draconian Anti-Abortion Law Was Allowed To Stay In Force


The developers distanced themselves from publisher Tripwire after his boss said he was “proud” that a draconian Texas anti-abortion law had been approved.
John Gibson, president of publisher Chivalry 2, Killing Floor and Maneater, tweeted to say that he “felt it was important to be a pro-life game developer.”

Toronto-based Chivalry 2 developer Torn Banner Studios did not announce that he had severed ties with Tripwire, but did tweet to distance himself from Gibson’s statement.

“We do not share the opinion expressed in a recent tweet from the chairman of Tripwire, editor of Chivalry 2,” Torn Banner tweeted.

“This perspective is not shared by our team, nor is it reflected in the games we create. The declaration opposes what we believe about women’s rights. “

Texas’ new anti-abortion law took effect last week after a nod from the United States Supreme Court. It allows anyone, anywhere, to sue anyone linked to an abortion in which cardiac activity has been detected in the embryo: as early as six weeks pregnant, before most women even realize that they are pregnant.

Some prominent figures in the video game industry have slammed Gibson over his tweet, including a former Gears of War developer Cliff Bleszinski and current director of God of War Cory Barlog.

US President Joe Biden called the Supreme Court ruling “an unprecedented attack on a woman’s constitutional rights.”
