Seal Team Six Disciplined For Medal of Honor: Warfighter

on November 8, 2012 10:29 PM

Seal Team Six–made famous for one of their member’s involvement in the raid leading up to Osama bin Laden’s death–are now facing disciplinary action for their roles as consultants for Medal of Honor: Warfighter.

CBS reports that seven members of the US Navy Seals team are being reprimanded for revealing classified information during the game’s production. The Seals were a huge part of production for the military shooter, giving insight to help create a more authentic, realistic game.

The seven seals are receiving letters of reprimand and two months of half-pay. Four former members–who transferred from the team but remain active elsewhere–are also being investigated for their involvement in the game’s production.

The seals work with Warfighter isn’t over: the seals will be appearing in Warfighter’s upcoming DLC, as well as Kathryn Bigelow’s upcoming film, Zero Dark Thirty.
