DayZ Refused Classification in Australia

The Australian Classification Board Listing for DayZ shows the survival shooter is rated RC, or Refused Classification, in Australia as of June 4, 2019. This ruling, which means it cannot be sold down under, is not the first time we've seen a game run afoul of delicate Australian sensibilities, but the oddity here is that DayZ was previously approved for sale in the region. Gamasutra notes that the game is still available digitally, and the new rating seems to apply only to physical versions of the game, however, there is no indication of why this distinction is being drawn. Here is the explanation for the rating:

The computer game is classified RC in accordance with the National Classification Code, Computer Games Table, 1. (a) as computer games that "depict, express or otherwise deal with matters of sex, drug misuse or addiction, crime, cruelty, violence or revolting or abhorrent phenomena in such a way that they offend against the standards of morality, decency and propriety generally accepted by reasonable adults to the extent that they should not be classified."

wow, someone was having a moody day on the job. Likely met 'people' online, and it wasn't pleasant.
