Rebellion Developments, the developer of the upcoming Aliens vs. Predator game has successfully appealed the decision made by the Australian Office of Film and Literature Classification, which denied the game a rating earlier this month stating an extreme level of violence. Last week, Rebelion Developments won the appeal to have the game, set to be published by Sega, classified as 15+ in Australia when it releases in February 2010. The British and American Classification Boards have rated the game as suitable only for a mature audience, giving it a 18+ rating.
Responding by the news that the game would be denied a rating earlier this month, Jason Kingsley, CEO of Rebellion Developments, stated that the company “will not be releasing a sanitized or cut down version for territories where adults are not considered by their governments to be able to make their own entertainment choices.” President of Sega Australia, Darren McBeth, stated this weekend that the game will release in Australia without any form of altered content.
