In the wake of news that the Australian Classification Board has refused classification of Saints Row IV, publisher Deep Silver has stated it plans to create a new version of the game and resubmit it to the classification board in the hope of attaining an MA15+ or R18+ rating here in Australia.

 

“Deep Silver can confirm that Saints Row IV was denied an age classification in Australia,” read a statement sent to Kotaku Australia. “Volition, the developer, are reworking some of the code to create a version of the game for this territory by removing the content which could cause offence without reducing the outlandish gameplay that Saints Row fans know and love. Saints Row IV has been awarded PEGI 18 and ESRB M ratings where fans can enjoy their time in Steelport as originally intended.”

 

We’re still waiting to see the Classfication Board’s report, so can’t speculate as to why the game was refused classification. We’ll hopefully get a hold of the report at some point tomorrow.

What a joke! Living in Australia myself, I just find this simply ridiculous. We finally get our R18+ rating only to STILL be denied games
