An implied rape scene in Outlast 2 has led to the Australian Classification Board (ACB) refusing classification for the title.
The “depiction of implied sexual violence” means Outlast 2 “therefore cannot be accommodated within the R18+ classification category and the game is therefore Refused Classification,” the ACB wrote in a report brought to light by Kotaku Australia.
Outlast 2‘s demo received an R18+ classification from the board late last year.
Outlast 2 was planned for late April release on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4. Warner Bros. is distributing the title here in Australia.
