Ubisoft pulls UK and US release of We Dare

Ubisoft have announced that they have pulled “sexy” party game We Dare from release within both the United Kingdom and the United States.

“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,” commented an Ubisoft spokesperson to The Telegraph.

Such a decision had been prompted by a hugely negative response to PEGI’s decision to award the game a 12+ rating.

PEGI themselves explained its reasoning behind the rating earlier, saying that it judged games on their content rather than context. “The game is in fact less sexual/offensive than the marketing campaign leads us to believe,” the company commented in a statement.

It was last week that Ubisoft stated that We Dare would “absolutely not” see a release within the United States.

We Dare was due to release today for the Wii, across the United Kingdom.
