Ian Milham, the creative director for Visceral Games' "Battlefield: Hardline," came forward to address the controversies surrounding the game, Polygon reported.

Shortly after "Hardline" was announced, the game was criticized due to how it depicted the conflict between police officers and criminals.

Specifically, the game came under fire for how it glamorized the militarization of law enforcement agencies, an issue which is becoming prevalent in real-world events.
