The developer provided a statement to GameSpot on the matter, saying after concerns were raised to the studio, the decision was made to alter the "offensive" trophy title.

"We have created and will soon push out a patch for God of War: Ascension that alters the title of one of the game Trophies. The text was offensive to some members of our community and impacted their enjoyment of the game," Sony Santa Monica's statement reads.

"We are endlessly committed to ensuring that our community can fully enjoy the experiences the team has created," the statement goes on. "As such, we've addressed the feedback and amended the Trophy in question."

Joystiq reports that the trophy is unlocked when players vanquish Fury, one of the game's female antagonists.

God of War: Ascension launches tomorrow exclusively for the PlayStation 3. For more, check out GameSpot's review.
