Bandai Namco’s office located in Santa Clara, California is currently investigating a potential bomb threat according to IGN.
Following receiving a tip, IGN contacted the Bandai Namco offices about the possibility of a bomb threat. Bandai Namco has since responded saying:
“We can’t provide any comment regarding the validity of the threat as there is an ongoing investigation in progress. We can say that all our employees are safe and that we will be doing everything in our power to safeguard the well being of our employees.”
As of now, it’s not clear whether or not the threat to the office is credible, but the scare comes at a rough time. Only two weeks ago a gunman killed 22 people and injured 26 in an attack on a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, and only hours after 10 people were killed and 27 others were injured in a shooting in Dayton, Ohio.
Bandai Namco is continuing its investigation into the threat and local authorities have been alerted. If any developments come we’ll update this story as they are known.
