Red Dead Redemption Banned In UAE

The United Arab Emirates seem to have banned from their market Rockstar's western sandbox title Red Dead Redemption without an official explanation as for the reasons of the ban according to a local retailer. Nor Rockstar, nor Take2 have made any announcement about the matter; even local publisher Red Entertainment are keeping silent over this decision. For many this has been a surprise as there are apparently no major issues on Red Dead Redemption's content that could lead to a ban.

Sadly, this is not an isolated case, as gamers in UAE recently saw God of War 3 banned, and EA didn't even dare to publish Dante's Inferno as they believed that its religious thematic would have it banned almost for sure. Heavy Rain and Darksiders never made it either.
