Following the removal of DayZ from Australian digital stores, Life is Strange 2 has been the next victim of Australia’s classification system. Fortunately, it is only a temporary removal with the game’s age rating under review.
Luckily, if you have already installed the game and its contents, you will still be able to play as it will not be removed from your device.
This situation is temporary and only affects Australian digital storefronts. We will restore service asap and will keep you updated with any developments. Already installed LiS2 content will not be removed from your device during this period and will still be playable.

The official Life is Strange Twitter account announced the news saying that the game would be removed on digital stores for all platforms from Wednesday, September 10, but only for around two weeks. It is also assumed that the episodes will be removed along with the base game during this downtime.
It was also explained that they are currently working the Classification board to review the rating placed on the game.
If you are unfamiliar about the controversy surrounding the removal of DayZ, here is a quick rundown. DayZ was recently refused classification in Australia due to, and this is probably a first, not current depiction of drug use but the threat of drug use in a future update. As a result, the upcoming physical release was put a stop to in Australia, and this naturally meant the digital release went the same way and it was quickly removed from Australian storefronts.
