According to this Next-Gen piece, the ERSB is to stop posting up information of unannounced games its rated on its website.

Apparently, the body’s to include a new field in its online submission form for publishers to give a date as to when they want certain information from their products heading into the public domain.

“Unless there are specific concerns regarding premature disclosure of a title, we expect this field to be left blank,” said a memo on the issue.

“While we recognize some publishers have concerns regarding earlier-than-desired ‘announcements’ of product on our website, the ESRB system will not work for consumers if publishers arbitrarily select dates bearing no reasonable relationship to consumer interest in the product.”
