CD Projekt RED is confident that their upcoming action role playing game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt won't be rejected by Australia's Classification Board. The Witcher 2 was previously refused classification due to depictions of a sexual act that fell outside contextual rules specified by the Board, forcing the developers to re-submit a modified gimped version for us Australian adults who are obviously too fragile to handle these things.
Agnieszka Szostak told games.on.net’s Tim Colwill:
The fact that there’s a higher rating now available in Australia might potentially mean we won’t be forced to do any changes to the game to release it there and that’s a good news of course for both us and Australian gamers. But we’ll know that for sure once the game will be sent for rating. We don’t create the game with any specific rating in mind. Whether those are meaningful choices, deep relationships between characters, sex scenes, bloody combat or curses. If we think they are needed there to make the game world living, breathing and believable they will be there.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be casting a spell on PC and next-generation consoles sometime in the future.
