Hatred - Game Gets Adults Only Rating in the US

Violence and Language Earn Highest Classification

The controversial video game Hatred has gotten its age rating and the developers aren't too happy about it since the ESRB applied the highest possible classification: Adults Only (ESRB: AO). The developers stress that their game is the second title ever to get that rating just for the depicted violence and language usage. It joins the previously released Thrill Kill that was rated due to the same reasoning and the uncensored version of Manhunt 2 that also earned that classification because of its sexual content.

The consequence for Hatred is drastic. Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony have the policy not to allow games with the AO rating to be developed for their gaming systems. A release on the Steam platform could also turn out unsatisfactory because guidelines for such titles are not clearly defined at the moment.

The developers say that censorship adjustments are unlikely but that they clearly wished for the Mature (17+) rating.
