Announced not too long ago, EA's reboot of the Syndicate series, at the hands of Starbreeze Studios, will not be seeing the light of day in Australia.
Reported by Kotaku, the news unsurprisingly comes from the Australian Classifications Board entry for the game, which popped up yesterday, describing the game's classification as 'RC'. That's 'Refused Classification', for what it's worth.
Why has Syndicate been banned? Official word is yet to be given, but we're speculating it is due to the abilities the character has in the game, one specifically causing opponents to commit suicide.
Those looking to buy the title when it launches next year will have to be content with importing, unless the classification is revoked, or a censored version is released locally.
