PS3 game Motorstorm: Apocalypse gets new release date

PS3 game Motorstorm: Apocalypse gets new release date24 March 2011 15:36:16

A new release date has been confirmed for PS3 game Motorstrom: Apocalypse.

The game had been due to be released in the UK on March 15th, but was postponed due to the earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan on March 11th.

But MCVUK.com reports that Sony has now announced a revised release date of March 31st for the game.

The game is set in an earthquake-ravaged fictional US city that crumbles around the player as they race and game bosses thought this setting would be insensitive to events in Japan if the game been released as originally planned.

A Sony Computer Entertainment Europe spokesperson told the news provider at the time: "We are very conscious of the parallels between these events and the underlying theme in Motorstorm and are doing everything we can to be as sensitive as possible to the situation.

"Although the game itself is already in distribution, we are ceasing any further shipments and removing as much of the marketing materials as possible."ADNFCR-2752-ID-800475163-ADNFCR
