YouTube relaxes restrictions on violent gaming videos

Dec 03, 2019 14:31 IST

YouTube has announced that it’s making a major change on how it moderates content related to in-game violence. The company said on Twitter, ‘from here on out, scripted or simulated violence in games will be treated the same way as violence in TV shows and movies’. This means fewer gaming videos on YouTube will be age-gated, which prevents a sizeable younger audience from viewing such videos. However, it will continue to age-restrict content if it "solely" focuses on violent or gory imagery.
