Dead Rising 3 banned in Germany, will miss Xbox One launch

The notoriously strict German ratings board has banned Capcom’s Dead Rising 3.

The move seriously dents Microsoft’s Xbox One launch plans in the country, robbing it of a key exclusive title. It’s not really a surprise, however, seeing as the first two games suffered a similar fate.

"Dead Rising 3 will not be released in Germany as part of the Xbox One launch line-up on November 22nd having been unable to attain an age-rating upon review by BPjM, the country’s entertainment software self-regulation body," a Microsoft rep told Destructoid.

"While Microsoft is disappointed with this decision, we respect the views of the review panel and have withdrawn Dead Rising 3 from Germany’s Xbox One launch line-up.

Dead Rising 3 will still be available in all other launch markets on 22 November 2013. Beyond that, we have no further comment.”
