Captain Crunch Rated M by Australian Classification Board

The Australian Classification Board has published a rating for an unheard of game called Captain-Crunch, by Electronic Arts. Listed as a "multi platform" title (specific platforms are not listed by the board), the game was rated M due to war themes and violence; it also features mild impact language and drug use.

Cap'n Crunch is the name of a popular American cereal, which prominently features a cartoon mascot called Horatio Magellan Crunch. Despite his typical military outfit, he seems unlikely to be related to a game based on war, violence, swearing, and drug use.

Is there a Captain Crunch game coming from EA, or is this in fact a codename for another title (something like Battlefield 4 or Titanfall seems likely to fit the bill, based on the Classification Board description alone), used to enable the game to be rated on the down-low?

Neither Battlefield 4 nor Titanfall have yet been rated by the Australian Classification Board. Country of origin on the submission is listed as USA, making Battlefield 4 (which is developed in Sweden - as is listed on the Battlefield 3 rating) less likely, should it be a codename for another product. Titanfall is developed by Respawn Entertainment, who are based in California, USA.

We've reached out to EA for comment and will update this story should they respond.

Wouldn't surprise me if the Australian Classification Board geriatrics rated a breakfast cereal, unless of course you gain rewards for consuming it, in which case it would be banned.
