According to German site PC Games, Wolfenstein is being recalled due to the swastika being present in the game.

It is against the law in Germany for anything to have a swastika in it, apparently.

A statement from Activision is expected in the coming days, according to the site’s sources, while Planet Wolfenstein has observantly pointed out that since teams from Endrant and Raven have both been laid off, it may complicate creating an edited version.

We will send Activision an email and see if anyone gets back with us.

Thanks, Blue.
