NEW DELHI: EA has decided to abandon sales of Dragon Age: Inquisition game in the India. The reason for this is that the publisher wanted to stay away from breaching ‘local content laws.’
There’s no mention of what the issue at hand actually is, but fingers are being pointed towards the fact that the game contains scenes of same-sex romance. Dragon Age: Inquisition has been removed from Origin, EA’s digital distribution platform for PC, and the title’s official distributor for consoles in India, Milestone Interactive has made it clear that its versions for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One too won’t be sold in the country.
While EA has kept things vague in its statement, a representative of Milestone has told NDTV Gadgets that the game’s ‘homosexual sex scenes’ are to be blamed for the withdrawal. It’s hence quite strange that EA’s other titles like Dragon Age: Origins, Dragon Age 2 and all three Mass Effect games still continue to be sold in India despite them containing same-sex romance.
