PETA vs. Farming Simulator
Cover of the game

PETA, an animal rights organization, in a letter to the Managing Director of the game, Christian Amman, and the developers of the Farming Simulator 17 game, Giants Software, requested that pig slaughter be added to the title.

Following the announcement that Farming Simulator 17 will have the pig farm, we are writing to encourage you to include slaughter footage in the game. To simulate the farming sector accurately, Farming Simulator 17 should show all aspects of pig farming, including what happens to pigs when they are sent to slaughter. We ask that you include footage of this type in your game to show players the horrific reality of the pig industry.

Despite these heavy statements by PETA, the game should be released October 25 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
