People are signing an online petition urging not to release the game.
“Active Shooter” is developed by Revived Games and will be released on 6th June 2018. You may pick a role either to be a member of S.W.A.T Team, a good buy or a bad guy to start shooting. The game is based on a plot where a shooter shots in school. As the shooter, you keep shooting and running, counting cops and regular civilian’s players you have executed. Or as S.W.A.T Team member, your role it to neutralizing the situation by killing the Shooter down.
