News - ESRB And PEGI Will Continue To Assign Ratings Remotely

ESRB And PEGI Will Continue To Assign Ratings Remotely

Xenoblade Chronicles has already been rated. Phew!

If you’re wondering what’s going on with classification boards around the world now that CERO in Japan has been temporarily closed, it’s business as usual.

An update from IGN reveals the ESRB in America has been working from home in recent weeks. So far, it’s had no issues assigning ratings remotely. Here’s an official statement:

Thanks to a good deal of advance planning, since March 16 ESRB has been operating remotely due to the COVID-19 outbreak. We have seen no delay in assigning ratings. We will continue to assign ratings remotely for as long as required.

Over in Europe, the European games rating agency PEGI is also working remotely. The impact of the resulting measures has been minimal:

In short: yes, we are currently working remotely with minimal impact on our operations. When this situation started to unfold across Europe a couple of weeks ago, we quickly found a way to continue our daily operations by working remotely. Given that PEGI (in Brussels) works with two independent administrators that are located in The Netherlands and the United Kingdom, and they deal with publishers all over the world that we do not have to meet in person, cooperating remotely has always been part of our daily routine. But now it happens from homes instead of different offices.

We informed the companies using the PEGI system that, until local authorities announce a change to the current measures, we will be working like this. But until now, the impact of the pandemic and the resulting measures has been minimal.

Unless something major happens or there is a problem on the publisher or development end, games in these regions will continue to be rated.
