Wal-Mart has decided to remove Xicat's Sniper: Path of Vengeance from stores in the Washington DC area, according to a report in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. As you have probably already guessed, the decision was made in response to the series of attacks by the Washington sniper that has resulted in the deaths of ten people and wounded three others since October 2. A Wal-Mart representative said that the game was pulled out of local sensitivity to the subject matter, and that the move doesn't reflect any link between the recent shootings and the game, which was released at the end of September.
