A few days ago we brought you news that the MotorStorm: Apocalypse game’s release date had been delayed, due to the ongoing events in Japan following the recent earthquake. At the time we wrote the article (here), it only appeared to be the Japanese date affected.
However, according to a recent article by Andy Robinson at computerandvideogames.com, Sony has since announced that the UK release date has also been delayed. The racing game was due to be released in the UK on March 17th, but has now been changed to “TBA.”
The MotorStorm: Apocalypse game places gamers in a post-apocalyptic city that has been rocked by natural disasters. Sony Computer Entertainment said that they are very conscious of the parallels between the recent events in Japan and the underlying theme of MotorStorm: Apocalypse.
Sony’s statement said that although they shipped the game into the channel last week, they have decided to postpone the UK launch and will continue to monitor the situation. They also went on to say that their thoughts are with all the people that have been affected by the earthquake and tsunami.
MotoroStorm: Apocalypse isn’t the only game that has been delayed either. The Yakua: Of the End game has also been postponed, as has the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 DLC. Meanwhile, publisher Irem has decided to cancel the Disaster Report 4 game altogether.
Do you hope that the MotorStorm: Apocalypse game is given another release date soon?
