If it worked for Mafia 3 and Lawbreakers it'll work for nuWolfenstein 2.

Did anybody ever stop to think that this isn't some devious marketing ploy, rather just a play on words of what has become a meme at this point? Seriously, there's not always a deeper meaning to everything said.

Holy s***, people have become so sensitive these days.

You're talking about Zenimax (and to a lesser degree, Bethesda) here. Think about what you just said.

This is marketing 101. If your product isn't getting enough buzz, make some yourself. One of the simplest tricks in the book.

Maybe, maybe not. You'd be surprised at what makes it through marketing with little to no thought. Obviously it's inspired by recent events, but so many people are taking it as a political statement, when it's not.

That's because people as a whole aren't very perceptive. It's just business; companies do this all the time. And while it might have started as just some tongue in cheek ads they spun from the game using recent social issues, they decided to run with it later on when they saw it raised some awareness for the game. (All while still keeping an air of levity in interviews so they can't be labelled as political leanings.)
