Evolution Studios’ upcoming adrenaline-fuelled racer Motorstorm: Apocalypse has been held back from release in various countries. Due to the current disasters in Japan and New Zealand, the game is being held indefinately.
The news comes from the Playstation Blog and says that the game’s release date will be held back until an update is given on the matter. The decision to prevent the release has come about due to the huge disasters in Japan and New Zealand recently, and it is assumed that once the areas are safer a new release date will be announced.
Many gamers are saddened by the news but equally sympathetic to the victims of the disasters, many have stated on the Blog that people will need to let time pass before a destructive game such as this comes out. Others are more dissapointed and feel that the game will not cause any controversy or upset and so should have kept its original release date March 12.
