Disco Elysium: The Final Cut is slated for launch on March 30, 2021, but the development team may have some regulatory matters to address before the launch in Australia.

According to the official ratings website , Disco Elysium: The Final Cut has been refused classification on March 18, 2021, which is dangerously close to the date it was meant to launch on, i.e. March 30.

Now, regulators Down Under tend to be quite strict so we're not sure what that means for Disco Elysium: The Final Cut as a release. We can only hope this gets cleared up ahead of launch because this is one release not to miss.

Disco Elysium: The Final Cut was envisioned as the ultimate version of the original game, and that's not a small thing to say considering the source material. Nevertheless, Za/Um took to making it even grander, recording about a million words from around 300 characters.

The developer insisted on a hands-on approach throughout the process, which included whole lotta casting and recording, and you could say their efforts were crowned upon finding Lenval Brown, whom the dev now calls the backbone of Disco Elysium: The Final Cut. Brown apparently recorded 350,000 words himself, which is said to be around a third of the game. 

Brown's character is actually your subconscious, by the way, so it's the one Disco Elysium: The Final Cut character everyone will have to experience first-hand.

Za/Um haven't officially commented the refused rating Down Under but we expect to hear from the dev pretty soon, if not for an immediate solution, then at least for a date when Australian players can expect to be able to buy the game.
