Earlier this year, we broke the news that controversial PlayStation 4/Vita game Omega Labyrinth Z had effectively been banned in the United Kingdom, following a refusal of classification by the Video Standards Council. This was the first time a video game had been refused by the Video Standards Council, who cited the potential to cause harm in relation to the Video Recordings Act (1984), in relation to the game’s sexual content. The game was also similarly refused classification in countries including Australia and Germany.
This morning, the publisher pQube Games issued a statement on Twitter, announcing a complete cancellation of the game’s North American and European release, citing a desire to “comply with the wishes of the platform holder” – strongly indicating that Sony themselves have refused the game for sale on their PlayStation platforms.
Please see below the statement on the situation of #OmegaLabyrinthZ in the West. It is with sadness that we announce that the game is cancelled on both platforms and all Western regions permanently. We will not comment further on this matter. Thank you for your support. pic.twitter.com/ePmmiWSTAY
