Dead Island Riptide Won’t Be Published In Germany

By   /   4 years ago

In an interview with PCGamesN, Sebastian Reichert, the Dead Island Riptide creative producer criticized Germany’s laws restricting the sale of media that is violent.

“We have no censored version of the game, so we cannot release it in Germany,” Reichert said. “It feels […] awkward to have one of the most successful games in years and nobody in your country knows it.”

Reichert went on to explain that Dead Island was banned due to the country’s laws prohibiting violence against human-like characters.

“At the moment, I’m really confused that you can buy Gears of War 3 in stores in Germany, but not Dead Island. Because, where’s the difference? [The enemies in Gears of War 3] are human-like, and [players] can do things to them. That’s in stores.”

Dead Island Riptide is due to be released on April 26, 2013.
