A popular Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer map, Favela, is temporary removed from the game following complaints from Muslim players regarding offensive religious imagery in one area.
The offensive content featured two paintings hung above a toilet, whose frames contained the quote "Allah is beautiful and He loves beauty."
As reported by Kotaku, Activision states it was unaware of the content and is creating an update to remove it.
"We apologize to anyone who found this image offensive,"says the publisher in a written statement. "Please be assured we were unaware of this issue and that there was no intent to offend. We are working as quickly as possible to remove this image and any other similar ones we may find from our various game libraries.
"We are urgently working to release a Title Update to remove the texture from Modern Warfare 3. We are also working to remove the texture from Modern Warfare 2 through a separate Title Update. Until the TU is ready, we have removed the Favella multiplayer map from online rotation.
"Activision and our development studios are respectful of diverse cultures and religious beliefs, and sensitive to concerns raised by its loyal game players. We thank our fans for bringing this to our attention."
Activision will return the map once this material is edited from the scene.
