THQ Nordic can finally throw the red pen away: Red Faction is removed from the German list of games considered harmful to young people
The BPjS (Federal Department for Media Harmful to Young Persons) trusts young Germans to handle modern media
Publisher THQ Nordic are thrilled to announce that Red Faction, after 13 years, will be removed from the list of media harmful to young persons, also known as “THE INDEX”:
Numerous discussions, tact and some skilful powers of persuasion were required to achieve this result. “At THQ Nordic we were aware of the implications of this momentous decision, and needed to adopt a bold approach.” says Jans Binsmaier, Publishing Director of the Viennese studio.
After the incredible news of our removal from the list, THQ Nordic is currently in (youth-free) party mode knowing that the Vienna-based team will be having further discussions with the BPjM: “We will of course still be nurturing our extensive games portfolio that now comprises over 350 titles, and will do our utmost to ensure that gamers can play our games in the future.” says Jan Binsmaier. We can still celebrate “small” successes like this even a decade later!
