Swery65 apologizes on social networks and assures that it will rely on a more diverse team for the review of Deadly Premonition 2.
Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise director and screenwriter Hidetaka Suehiro, better known in the industry as Swery65, has apologized on Twitter for portraying a transgender character in the video game, in which several characters, including the protagonist they refer to him by his old name, a practice known as ‘deadnaming’, and there is also a confusing use of pronouns. Besides, he has assured that he will rewrite said scene as soon as possible.
“I have come to realize when told by friends that I could have hurt transgender people with my story. It was not a wanted thing. I am truly sorry for that. Some scenes in the video game will be reviewed by a team where diversity dwells, and I will rewrite this scene specifically as soon as possible, “Swery65 commented on Twitter, further asking players not to hate the characters in Deadly Premonition 2 for the erratic plot decisions made on their part.
At the moment it is unknown when this patch will arrive and how big it could be when citing a review of several unclear scenes from the video game. A few days ago, on the other hand, the development team of Toybox and Rising Star Games confirmed that they are working on an update of technical improvements for Deadly Premonition 2 of which an approximate date for their arrival has not been shared either.
