Despite a response from Hi-Rez indicating that nothing about Smite would change and in fact, more deities would be added, the Hindu leader who spoke out against the game isn't giving up in trying to get things changed. In fact, he has new backers of other faith that have come together in support of his stance that the game's content is offensive.
Rajan Zed, the Hindu leader who began the effort to get gods like Kali removed from Smite, was joined by Rabbi ElizaBeth Beyer and Buddhist Jikai’ Phil Bryan in condemning the game's content as offensive. Rabbi Beyer, in a statement, asked that "the company...avoid trivializing the deeply held beliefs of Hindus by changing the product accordingly".
No word from Hi-Rez on the continued effort.
