Ubisoft issued a response to American animal rights organization, PETA’s whaling mechanic complaint in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.

In a statement to Polygon, Ubisoft’s senior PR manager, Stone Chin said:

“History is our playground in Assassin’s Creed. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is a work of fiction that depicts the real events during the golden era of pirates. We do not condone illegal whaling, just as we don’t condone a pirate lifestyle of poor hygiene, plundering, hijacking ships, and over-the legal-limit drunken debauchery.”
