Shadow of War's controversial charity DLC is now free

Shadow of War's controversial charity DLC is now free

Because this was not the case in some states, though, and because the wording around this DLC was perpetually confusing, some were perturbed at the idea that Warner Bros might be profiting from this ostensibly charitable DLC. Monolith and WB made a decision to memorialize the Shadow of War's executive producer Mike "Forthog" Forgey, who passed away in a DLC for the game he worked on. The statement says that even though they chose to donate all profits for the DLC to Forgey's family, they only planned to actively promote this donation in the USA, excluding the states that have certain charitable donation laws.

Specifically, we chose to sell the DLC worldwide and donate all profits from the DLC to the family. Better transparency would've ensured this didn't come to a head when it did, and it's unknown how much money could've been raised for Forgey's family with the Orc-Slayer DLC.

It's too bad Warner Bros.' confused messaging nearly ruined a charity drive to help a grieving family, but they seem to have twigged to the fact the way they went about it was wrong and are trying to correct the situation.

The announcement ends a controversy that had apparently begun with good intentions but which WBIE agreed "was not the best way to achieve our goal" of memorializing executive producer Michael Forgey of Monolith Productions, and raising money to support his wife and children.

Additionally, a factually incorrect tweet from our team exacerbated the confusion by stating that global funds would not be going to the family. We sincerely apologize to the fans and to the Forgey family for the confusion we created.

That being said, fans can still donate to the Forgey family, through the Your Caring website. Interactive Entertainment will instead make a donation directly to the Forgey family.

Yesterday we walked you all through an explanation by Monolith and Warner Bros about the controversy surrounding the loot boxes in Middle-earth: Shadow of War. The company has now offered refunds to those who have bought it. "If there is interest in donating directly to the family, please visit their youcaring site". Middle-earth: Shadow of War comes out on October 10 for the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.
