It is a bit offensive

Yesterday, Ubisoft fans received an email about upcoming The Division 2 private beta announcement. Players are already familiar that kind of emails but the headline of the email was a little bit odd. The headline of the email was "Come see what a real government shutdown looks like in the private beta."  

Ubisoft apologize about the Government Shutdown E-Mail after the backlash

So after the Ubisoft's email, lots of the American players show their reaction for the marketing mail. And today, Ubisoft officially apologize about the email and made a statement.

Ubisoft said:

"A marketing email promoting The Division 2 was sent in error today. This was a grave breakdown in process and we apologize for this error and the offensive subject line of the email. We recognize the very real impact of the United States government shut down on thousands of people and did not intend to make light of the situation .”
