No Jericho edit for Germany

Codies refuses. Will be PC only.

Codemasters has refused to edit the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Clive Barker's Jericho for release in Germany, GamesIndustry.biz reports.

The decision comes after the German ratings board USK declined to give the game a rating in the region.

"Following a review by the USK ratings board, which declined to give an official rating, Codemasters has decided not to change the artistic vision of the renowned author and film-maker Clive Barker though cuts and extensive changes," said the company in a statement sent to GamesIndustry.biz.

"Codemasters respects Mr Barker's creative ideas, despite the German distribution and marketing consequences for the title.

"Therefore Codemasters will release only the PC version of Clive Barker's Jericho in its original form for adult gamers and Clive Barker fans," confirmed the company.

The game is due for release in Europe on 26th October, with a demo of the game due on Xbox Live tomorrow and on PlayStation Network next week.

GamesIndustry.biz also refuses to water down its content, consistently leaving news as hard fact.
