Blizzard Appeals StarCraft II “Adult Only” Rating in South Korea

width="540"

We knew it was coming. After all, StarCraft II has received a Teen rating from the U.S.’s ESRB while it apparently picked up an Adult Only rating across the vast Pacific in South Korea. Regardless of what other politics were involved in the decision to rate it in such a way, the rating was done on an older build of the title, so Blizzard has rightly appealed the decision, providing a newer build of the game for perusal. Will the South Korean rating board change their minds? That remains to be seen. One thing is sure, however – if the game retains that rating, the bulk of citizens in that country may revolt, considering how popular the franchise is there for professional gaming.
