Because the name is a good “gotcha” after the Cosby trial.
Also I’d be completely fine, by the way, if they explicitly said that Jesse Mccree the dev was found to have inappropriately behaving in a manner that makes it impossible for the cowboy to have his name. Also I’m perfectly fine with the lore showing jesse mccree was an alias, even if the guy didn’t do anything. But be clear for the love of god. Don’t walk around it.
They have not done that.
They’re making it sound like that’s the case, but they’re not saying it.
If they say that, it’d all be clear to me. The fact they’ve been avoiding it feels very much like an internal settlement to leave the company with good severance and without any bad press for him (although I’d consider this bad press)
I just need this sort of transparency, not a vague statement.
