In an interview with the Ladbible portal, he clarified that in serious cases of hate speech, the Studio acts according to the Protocol and appeals to the appropriate authorities.
“We need to understand the difference: we created this game, so we believe in it and are proud of it. When it came out, users liked it or hated it — any opinion is fair. This is a reaction, there is no point in fighting it. There are much more vile things: for example, in relation to the actors who perform this or that character. One actress was sent really terrible, vile things because of a fictional role.
I try not to focus on this as much as I can. When such cases take a serious turn, we use certain security protocols and contact the authorities.”
