BBFC reveal classification decision that maybe they shouldn't have

Red Dead Redemption Classics Xbox The latest batch of classification decisions included the video game, Red Dead Redemption Game of the Year Edition.

It was classified as 18 uncut with the BBFC comment: This digitalmedia contains VERY STRONG LANGUAGE AND STRONG BLOODY VIOLENCE

However it wasn't long before this BBFC website listing was removed.

Commentators are speculating that revealing this decision could be an embarrassing mistake as there seems no other information adverting this new release even though September 16th is not so far away. Perhaps it was meant to be a surprise.

trueachievements.com comment on the current Red Dead Redemption release:

If you're a fan of open-world games, and you haven't yet played this, then this is a must-have title. It is an absolute masterpiece from the makers of the critically acclaimed and controversial GTA series.
