Surprising news! ban the sale in the Middle East of "The Last of Us Part II"

The Last of Us Part II is one of the most anticipated games of the year, it seems that the title of Naughty Dog will not be released in some countries, especially those in the Middle East.

It all started when a Reddit user answers the question about selling the game to the PlayStation team why people in the Middle East region can't pre-order the game through the UAE's PS store.

What the PlayStation support says


Because of this, PlayStation support stated the following: "If a game does not exist in any region of the Store, it means that the game is prohibited by the country's competent authorities and we cannot do anything about it."

This statement makes it clear that sales in the Middle East are prohibited, mainly the LGBT content and nudity contained in this game and that they are prohibited in that region.

This is not a new thing and there were cases from various studios that made small changes to their games so that they could be released, such as the CD Projekt Red case, which censored all of their sex scenes from The Witcher 3.

What we know so far is that the game will come with LGBT content, and given the lack of promotion of the game on the PlayStation Middle East Twitter account, it is intended for the return of the adventure of Ellie and Joel will be affected in the same regions .

It is also confirmed that the title features a game status dedicated to the game tomorrow, May 27, which promises 20 minutes of exclusive gameplay, something similar that happened with Ghost of Tsushima.

With the announcement that the sale in the Middle East of "The Last of Us Part II" is prohibited may be a problem for players who love the saga, hopefully the situation improved.
