Created 09/24/2001 - 23:00
Are you sensing a pattern? In what is becoming a more common response in the entertainment industry to the terrorist attacks on the U.S., Digital Leisure executives have put the new game CRIME PATROL on indefinite hold. The game places players in the role of a police officer stopping criminals - including drug dealers, bank robbers, car thieves, and in the final level, terrorists. "In light of the events that took place on September 11th, we feel that the release of CRIME PATROL may serve as a sad reminder of the attacks on New York and Washington," said Elizabeth Foster, president of Digital Leisure. "We have immediately switched our focus to producing WHO SHOT JOHNNY ROCK?, a detective game set in the Roaring 20s of Chicago, which we hope to release this fall."
