Red Dead banned in UAE

Publish date:

According to a report on ME Gamers, Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption has become the latest game to be banned in the traditionally sensitive territory.

The claims come from a retailer in the region. When asked for confirmation, both Rockstar and distributor Red Entertainment declined to comment.

The game joins a growing list of titles banned from release in recent months. The likes of Heavy Rain, Darksiders, God of War and, a little while back, Grand Theft Auto have all encountered problems thanks to content that is either religiously sensitive or, for want of a better word, rude.

EA pre-empted any possible ban by deciding not to release Dante's Inferno in the region.

Why Red Dead would succumb to such a decision is unclear for the time being.
