In light of the tragic attack in Toronto on Monday, April 23, Ukiyo Publishing announced that Death Road to Canada would not be released on April 25, as previously planned.
Paul Hann, Managing Director of Ukiyo, sent out a quote saying “We feel it would be deeply inappropriate to launch the game at such a time… We would like to express our deepest condolences to everyone affected by the tragic events in Toronto.”
Ukiyo has stated that they do not have exact plans for a future release date, but until the new date is announced, they have asked that media refrain from reviewing the game or otherwise publishing content related to it.
Vans are the weapon of choice of cowards and men who will be forgotten
The attack, carried out by a lone young man in a van, claimed the lives of 10 people in Toronto. As Death Road to Canada involves hitting zombies with a car (the name alone might have been enough), the decision to release the game at a later date is a kind one and will certainly only do the company favors.
