BloodRayne Betrayal Delayed in Australia

Uwe Boll did to BloodRayne what former wrestling behemoth Chyna has done to the porn industry — unmercifully destroy it, to never be ogled again for years to come. While the franchise hibernated in secrecy to hide itself from the German director’s god-awful “vision,” developer Wayforward brought out their cauldron and mixed some spicy ingredients for their new critical success: the 2D side-scroller BloodRayne: Betrayal, which released on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network this week. And while the majority of the world joins in song and dance as they, once again, justify the red-headed vampire hunter’s triumphant return to gaming, Australian gamers will, unfortunately, experience a slight delay due to “issues.” Well, if that isn’t a subtle response…

Xbox Australia stated the game was currently undergoing classification. But a quick glimpse on the Classifcation Board’s website reveals that the game had already been rated in August and received an MA 15+ rating (hardcore). When asked about this, Xbox Australia responded with:

The publisher reported having some issues but has been working on resolution. I don’t have more detail than that.

I think that response would have sufficed from the beginning, personally, rather than try to beat around the bush.

BloodRayne: Betrayal is currently available on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade (with the exception of Australia).
