I think we all know now that Uncharted 3 is under development by Naughty Dog. I mean who wouldn’t do another installment of a game that’s sold 4 million copies in one year, holds a steady 96 at metacritic, and won countless GoTY awards? Yet, it’s good to get further confirmation that the highly anticipated sequel’s forthcoming.
Rubicon Holding’s executive director Ghassan Ayoubi spoke to The National in a recent interview where topics concerning violence in games, and the need for said games to be edited before they can be released to Arab audiences were discussed. The firm hopes to create a path so games don’t get banned by creating an initiative to localize those them by making all the necessary edits, beginning with a partnership with MEC, a distributor of Sony titles in Saudi Arabia.
Existing titles will be worked on first, then the firm will move to titles currently under development with Ayoubi quoted as saying the company will localize “two to four games per year.”
Two games mentioned as being amongst the first to be localized are Fifa 11 and Uncharted 3.
Not surprising at all.
