Ubisoft Changing Assassin's Creed Odyssey DLC Following Forced Relationship Furore

Apparently, two apologies weren’t enough: a Ubisoft community manager has announced the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey team is returning to the Shadow Heritage DLC and editing it to appease those who were furious over its forced relationship. "Ubisoft will now alter scenes from the DLC's ending so your relationship with this character can remain exclusively non-romantic, if you choose." A trophy/achievement called ""Growing Up," is also being altered, "which some construed as a comment that being gay or childless was a phase to grow out of."

"After hearing player feedback and discussing within the development team we are making changes to a cutscene and some dialogue in Shadow Heritage to better reflect the nature of the relationship for players selecting a non-romantic storyline. These changes, along with renaming a trophy/achievement, are being made now and will be implemented in an upcoming patch. We've also been carefully looking at the next episode, Bloodline, to ensure the paths that players experience mirror the choices they make in game."
