Former Panamanian Dictator recently filed a law suit against Activision to due to the portrayal in the campaign of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Activision today announced the company is moving to dismiss the case, and are calling it ‘absurd.’

“What’s astonishing is that Manuel Noriega, a notorious dictator who is in prison for the heinous crimes he committed, is upset about being portrayed as a criminal and enemy of the state in the game Call of Duty. Quite simply, it’s absurd,” said Rudy Giuliani. “I’m not interested in giving handouts to a convicted murderer and drug smuggler like Manuel Noriega who is demanding money from Activision and its popular Call of Duty franchise for simply exercising its right to free speech. Noriega’s attack on the rights of Call of Duty comes as no surprise considering he’s a lawless tyrant who trampled over the rights of his own people.”

The stories in the Call of Duty franchise, like many movies and television shows, are ripped from headlines. From the Cold War to World War II and the advanced soldiers featured in the upcoming Call of Duty®: Advanced Warfare, the game is fictional, but is grounded in reality. Call of Duty regularly features characters that are ruthless dictators and iconic villains, such as Fidel Castro and Manuel Noriega, as well as vaunted heroes such as President John F. Kennedy

    • In deff on da stooopiditee of noweega

  • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

    Kind of hypocritical on both sides (double-edged sword).

  • f***k that, he just wants money in his back pocket…

  • He’s upset he was portrayed as a bad man. Yet he was/is a bad man. Lol

    • jordanxbrookes

      Such logic, Noriega logic. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

  • One of my favourite campaigns to date, stupid that Noriega is trying to sue them as all there doing is portraying him in the way he was in real life….

  • Mitch

    Rudy Giuliani? He was New York City’s mayor right?

    • k5berry

      That’s what I was thinking!

  • Seven

    Can see why he would sue them. I would too and I was suprised that Castro didn’t do anything back in black ops.

    • Cuba responded to his assassination in Black Ops.
      ” What the United States couldn’t accomplish in 50 years, they are now trying to do virtually.

    • RdJokr

      Castro just dismissed it as an attempt to glorify what US failed to do back in the day. A much more respectful action than what Noriega did.

      • TheShadowReaper

        Castro may be an asshole but at least he is a badass asshole. much respect to him.

      • Derrick Wingler

        you didn’t actually kill Castro though lol. You kill his body double. BO1 didn’t “glorify” anything. The US fucked up and mason ends up in prison because of it.

  • Instakill115

    Wow. good for them, call him out on his bullshit. they didn`t dance around it, I wish more people told assholes like this to go fuck themeselves.

  • Joey Woof

      • Joey Woof

    • KernosT

      IKR.I don’t think I’ll be buying Advanced Warfare until Condrey tells us about how good the next gen fish AI is or atleast if its there or not.

      • MichiganerE

        Agreed! Not only that, but not even Destiny has A.I. Fish, I expect better from Bungie!

      • Joey Woof

        I just got a leak from Advanced Warfare, the Fish A.I. are not the #1 priority!!!

    • WarfarewithblackopsGhosts

      #leh

    • Tyrant Era

      I found dory!

  • what… I think they are right, about the stupid lawsuit. But I disagree that people like Castro are “villains” and USA presidents the “heroes”. The evilest people is the one running the dictatorship of USA, the no. 1 mass murder country, war machine. lol

    • Social Justice Warlock

      Fuck. I cut myself on all that edge.

  • Emre

    noriega was selling drugs with united snakes of america.
    and noriega flipted on them. so they capture him in his own country and set him for life in there country.

  • Bartram22

    This is the news I’ve been waiting for since the last article about advanced warefare thankyou 😀

  • jordanxbrookes

    It is absurd. If you don’t want to be portrayed as a bad person, don’t be a bad person.

    • RdJokr

      A little too late for Noriega though…

    • TheShadowReaper

      agreed. although being a bad person is completely up to a person’s opinions about right or wrongs and how he or she perceives things. 50% opinion and 50% perception. although i believe that most would agree that Noriega was a piece of shit most of his lifetime, if not in all of his lifetime.

  • WarfarewithblackopsGhosts

    Ha Ha #BAMF

  • jooker-jr

    We the fish community ( yes fish uses the Internet ) want to sue ACTIVISION inc. becase they and without a permission used the fish nemo to promote a featrue in a game called call of duty ghosts called FISH AI.

    We want justice and only justice.

      I will gladly support.

    • Joey Woof

      When shall we open the lawsuit?

      • jooker-jr

      • Guywithbrains

        I don’t know either. Maybe they try to put it there.

        • What surprises me is that no one mentioned it missing, they’re too busy fighting in the comment section.

      • WarfarewithblackopsGhosts

        Hi

  • Sentinel

    Sue them…that’s silly coming from Noriega. I would of been honored to be portrayed in a Call of Duty game as the villain! He should only be upset that Activision didn’t approach Noriega himself to participate in the game and motion capture to make his character more realistic!!

  • WarfarewithblackopsGhosts

    • It’s a joke…

      • Mitch

        It’s more a piss-take towards Infinity Ward, at least that’s how I feel :p

        • Well, that’s what I meant it being a joke. 😛

  • Guest

    Hey there will be an AMA on I believe Reddit sometime before the AW release. http://gyazo.com/4cf03260219667eb9c523e70dc70c6a3

  • Hey guys. Micheal Condrey replied to someone on twitter and confirmed that there will be an AMA sometime on I believe Reddit before the release of AW.

    • Ryumoau

      awesome. 🙂

  • Ryumoau

    i’m so glad Activision isn’t caving in and giving that d-bag any money.
