This isn’t the first time that a production has been denied or censored in Australia, but today the country strikes again, this time targeting ZA / UM’s next creation. Indeed, the Australian Government’s Classification Board refused to classify Disco Elysium: The Final Cut, which means that as it stands, the title cannot be sold in the territory. According to the Australian Government’s Classification Board website, the production does not meet generally accepted community standards and has been described as “portraying, expressing or otherwise dealing with issues of sex, drug addiction, crime, cruelty, violence or revolting or odious phenomena in such a way that they contravene the standards of morality, decency and convenience generally accepted by reasonable adults ”.
Unfortunately for ZA / UM, Disco Elysium: The Final Cut does deal with all the subjects pointed out by Australian territory. However, what is particularly surprising is that this new classification does not affect the previous version of the game which is already available on Steam in this same territory.
