The developer also said the original response to the controversy was “insensitive and poorly communicated,” but stressed that the development and casting process was designed in such a way as to remove “unconscious biases.”
Wargroove’s Double Trouble DLC comes out on February 6th for PC, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One, with the PlayStation 4 version arriving “soon” after the first launch.
