GamingIndians reports that Microsoft India has cancelled Bethseda’s Fallout 3 in the country and has cited “cultural sensitivities” as the cause.

The statement in full:

Microsoft constantly endeavors to bring the best games to Indian consumers in sync with their international release. However, in light of cultural sensitivities in India, we have made the business decision to not bring Fallout 3 into the country.

Just as to what cultural idiosyncrasies aren’t being adhered to is unknown at this time.
