You remember We Dare, right? Publisher Ubisoft recently caught flak after this Wii party game – which depicted couples spanking and stripping in its trailer – was given a 12+ certificate in the UK. Cue ‘outraged parents’, attacks from opportunistic politicians, and a crapload of bad publicity for Ubi.
Well, now Ubisoft has confirmed it won’t be releasing the game in Britain, having already ruled out a North American release last week. Here’s what a spokesperson for the company blathered to the Telegraph:
“Following the public reaction to the 12+ rating of We Dare, Ubisoft has made the decision not to sell the game in the United Kingdom.”
The Most Ironically Named Game of 2011 award is now officially a shoo-in.
