After Earthquake and Tsunami that hit Japan last week, there are obviously several services and industries hit badly as the road to recovery starts. The I though was a no brainer as a Disaster like that would sure disrupt several things. I didn’t see one of them things being the video game industry.
There has been 2 games that have been affected because of the incident. One is called Disaster Report 4 which has been cancelled and the other is Yakuza of the End which has been delayed.
Disaster Report 4
With this game being a third person, free roaming style game in a city that has just been struck by a gigantic earthquake you can see why this has been cancelled. This game has already suffered delays in the development and just as it was preparing for release they were cancelled as it was deemed inapropiate because of recent events. I think that’s a fair point to be honest.
I still can’t help but feel sorry for the developers on this one. An entire game gone to waste. Even if they do wish to re release it they will probably have to revamp it to keep up with the current trend of games.
If you know of any additional games that have been affected because of the earthquake. Please comment below.
