Saints Row IV denied Australian classification for the second time

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Peter Grimm  

Last month, Saints Row IV made headlines when the Australian Classification Board denied the game classification, effectively banning it from the country entirely. The reason being was the existence of such things as unjustifiable “implied sexual violence” and elements of “drug use related to incentives or rewards” within the game.

And it looks like the ACB hasn’t changed its mind. Today, it was revealed that the Board, upon re-reviewing SR4, has unanimously agreed to uphold the current “Refused Classification” status that the game carries presently.

“In the Review Board’s opinion, Saints Row IV could not be accommodated within the R 18+ classification as drug use related to incentives and rewards is not permitted,” the ACB wrote on its website.

Do note that the ACB’s decision is in regards to the unedited version of SR4, not the edited version that Volition is working on to get the game past the Board’s guidelines. It remains to be seen when they will make their decision on that version.
