Viva Entertainment has confirmed that Saints Row: The Third has been banned by the National Media Council of the UAE.

The highly-anticipated open world action game was set to be released on November 18 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

No official reason has been given by the National Media Council, however previous games in the series have had sexual themes and violent matter. The open use of drugs and alcohol too might have been another reason for the ban of the game in the UAE.

Saints Row: The Third is a direct sequel to Saints Row 2, which was released in 2008. The game once again takes place in the fictional city of Stilwater. Players take on the role of the leader of The Third Street Saints gang.
