Strategy game first released on PC and to be released on consoles later this year Tropico 5 has been banned in Thailand by the military after several months of a military coup by General Prayuth Chan-ocha. The game has been taken down for sale in Thailand because according to the military it’s causing disruption of “peace and order”.
New era Thailand the publisher in charge of distributing the game in that area of the world stated that they decided to ban it because “it was a threat to national security”.This is not the first time that a game has been banned for being a “threat to national security” China last year banned Battlefield 4 for the same reason although they didn't fully understand the context of the campaign.
Tropico 5 is currently out on PC, but is scheduled for xbox 360 on 5th of September and 31st of October on PS4.
