Kotaku Australia reports
that Soldier of Fortune Payback has been refused
classification by the Australian Office of Film and Literature Classification
(OFLC), though Activision claims this is unrelated to the release date setback
the game has suffered in Australia that will not impact other territories. This
means the game will have to be reworked to be sold down under, but also should
reassure fans of the series that Payback contains the graphic violent content
for which earlier installments in the mercenary shooter series were notorious.
