Aliens vs Predator developer Rebellion has responded to the news that the game has been refused classification in Australia.Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley has released a statement stressing that though the news is “disappointing,” the lack of an adult rating for games in Australia means AvP is not suitable for release.“Rebellion is disappointed that its upcoming title Aliens vs. Predator has been banned in Australia,” said Kingsley (via CVG).“However, as we understand the law in that country the authorities had no choice as we agree strongly that our game is not suitable for game players who are not adults.”

    “The content of AvP is based on some of the most innovative and iconic horror movies, and as such we wanted to create a title that was true to the source material. It is for adults, and it is bloody and frightening, that was our intent. We will not be releasing a sanitized or cut down version for territories where adults are not considered by their governments to be able to make their own entertainment choices.”  Kingsley’s comment echoes what the head of art and design at Rebellion, Tim Jones, told us in an interview recently, stressing that the developer is unwilling to compromise its vision to ensure release in censorship-heavy regions.
