Trivia

Controversy

Executive producer Phil DeLuca posted a hilarious statement on the game's official forum in which he threatened to involve The Department of Justice, the Secret Service and even the FBI in tracking down cheaters: "you are breaking the EULA, you're misusing Army property - and, worse, you're misusing US Army computer programs and equipment."

He then went on comparing cheaters to the Japanese in the attack on Pearl Harbor and warned everyone for similar revenge: "Let the sleeping giant lie. We may not react swiftly, but when we do it's with unstoppable force. We know who you are, and can track down where you play from. The Army is angry, and we're coming for you."

As the statement drew much attention, it was soon removed.

Soldiers
