EA Pulls Dragon Age: Inquisition Launch In India Due To Local Obscenity Laws(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – BioWare’s newly released game, Dragon Age: Inquisition has been officially pulled from launching in India due to some of the sexual nature displayed in the game.

Kotaku reported earlier this week that EA decided to cancel the game due to India’s obscenity laws.”

“In order to avoid a breach of local content laws, EA has withdrawn Dragon Age: Inquisition from sale in India and the game is no longer available for pre-order,” said an EA representative. “Customers who pre-ordered the game will be contacted directly and will be fully refunded.”

The rep also noted that the publisher’s decision to cancel the game was in no way affiliated with the recent rumors surrounding the game’s gay characters and “romance” options.

“The decision here is in relation to local obscenity laws, but not specific to same gender romance,” continued the rep, adding that the sexuality of specific characters such as Dorian is “irrelevant” to the issue.

Dragon Age: Inquisition was released on November 18th for North American players, followed by a European release tomorrow, November 21st.
