Capcom UK has decided to cancel its Resident Evil Revelations event in light of the tragic attack in Woolwich, London. Yesterday, a British soldier was reportedly hacked to death by two men shouting islamic statements in the streets of South London, in which the government is treating to be a terrorist attack. One of the men was filmed – still holding the knives in which he carried out the attack – and claimed that he killed the man because British soldiers kill Muslims every day.
Due to the attack, Capcom UK’s event – which was to see a 16ft by 32ft swimming pool filled with a specially concocted blood dye combined with human torso floats – will no longer be going ahead this weekend on May 25 and 26 at London’s Jupiter Wharf. A Capcom UK spokesperson had the following to say this morning:
“In light of yesterday’s sad events we’re cancelling our Revelations pool event. Thank you for your understanding.”
Due to the sensitive nature of this topic, please keep your comments in respect of the tragic occurrence. Thankyou.
