Disco Elysium Final Cut has been refused classification in Australia on the same day its PlayStation and PC release date was announced.
Yesterday, the Australian Classification Board refused classification to the title, placing it under the banner of games that “depict, express of otherwise deal with matters of sex, drug misuse or addiction, crime, cruelty, violence or revolting or abhorrent phenomena in such a way that they offend against the standards of morality, decency, and propriety generally accepted by reasonable adults to the extent that they should not be classified.”
It’s likely drug-related references that have landed the title in hot water. It could also just be a problem with the way in which the title was submitted for classification.
Disco Elysium Final Cut is supposed to head to Windows PC, PS4 and PS5 on 30 March; this result impacts the PlayStation release but not its PC release via Steam.
We’ll keep you informed as more is known (and thanks for the spot, Vooks!).
