Sony has put the brakes on the North American release of MotorStorm Apocalypse
, delaying the game indefinitely in the wake of last week's devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan. The delay, announced on the PlayStation Blog
, doesn't exactly come as a surprise, given that the title's launch had previously been postponed in Japan
and the UK
Set in an earthquake-ravaged costal city, the Evolution Studios developed racer had been scheduled for release on April 12. Sony told Joystiq earlier this week that the date still stood. When contacted today, SCEA confirmed the delay and added that there is "no new date at the moment."
