There seems to be something that boils for Rockstar, given the news of the past few hours, of the software house’s attempt to register the “Bonaire” brand in Australia. An attempt that was rejected by the Australian video game classification agency, which means that it will be banned in that country.
Unfortunately, however, the description of the product, apart from clarifying that it is a video game by Rockstar Games, does not explain much else, so one wonders what it may refer to. He is shooting a web theory that it could be a DLC for Red Dead Redemption 2.
Bonaire is in fact the name of a Caribbean island, and since a portion of the campaign is set on the fictitious island of Guarma, Bonaire could be a new section to add to the single-player campaign or the online part of the game.
The reason for the refusal by the Australian authorities remains to be understood. The same Red Dead Redemption 2, for example, has been classified as MA15 +, that is as forbidden to children under 18 years, for which a similar evaluation was expected. It must be said in any case that many other video games in the past have suffered such refusal, only to be approved sometime later. This is the case, for example, of Hotline Miami 2, which only yesterday was made available for the first time in the country.
In short, it is not said that it is really Red Dead Redemption 2, and it is not known if and when it will be approved by the authorities. Yet since it is Rockstar the mind already falters, so dreaming becomes almost an obligation: what if it was the infamous Bully sequel? Or a new LA Noire? What do you think?
