Rockstar: GTA IV censorship is an “error,” will be fixed “within hours”

Thursday, 19th February 2009 23:28 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Rockstar has issued a statement to VG247 confirming that some versions of GTA IV have been censored by the game’s latest title update, and that the “error” is to be fixed immediately.

“We are aware of an error with the latest GTA IV title update and are confident the issue will be fixed within the next few hours,” said a rep.

“We apologize to our fans for any inconvenience caused.”

It was reported earlier today that Europeans had noticed pools of blood missing from around corpses, and camera angles dropped from sex scenes in the game.

Many had assumed The Lost and Damned had been the cause of the changes, by, as you can see, it was the separate patch.

Still, not to worry. You’ll have you blood back pronto.

    Heh, people like to complain for the smallest problems…who cares if your little puddle of blood isn’t there! doesn’t actually change the game’s experience.

    I’m sure it must have been awfully inconvenient for those players who couldn’t get to watch their prostitutes do their thing with them at the right angle…

    Kids these days.
