Brexit becomes most popular disease name in Plague Inc.

Plague Inc., the game in which players try to cultivate and spread a disease, allows players to name the disease, so naturally some topical names crop up. Brexit has become the most popular disease name in the days following the UK’s decision to leave the EU.

Brexit overtook Trump as the most popular disease name, knocking it off the perch it’s held for several months. It looks like Brexit’s popularity has peaked, according to developer James Vaughan, while Trump’s in-game popularity has remained constant.

Vaughan also revealed that this kind of event is to be expected. In 2012, around the time of the presidential election, Obama was a popular choice, while players have also named their disease after real world outbreaks like Ebola and Zika.
