Death Road To Canada Postponed Due To Tragic Toronto Event

As many of you no doubt already know, yesterday a man killed and hurt many innocent civilians by purposely hitting them with a van in Toronto. This was a despicable act and our hearts and prayers go out to the victims and their friends and families.

Due to be released tomorrow on the Switch, Death Road To Canada has been postponed to a later date. The publisher feels (and rightly so) that it would be inappropriate to release the game at this time. Although the game deals mostly with zombies, just the title of the game takes on a more sinister meaning in light of this horrific event. No word on when the game will release, but we commend the publisher for taking this action. Our review was set to go up today, but we are holding it until the official release date. Here’s the full press release:


Following yesterday’s tragic events in Toronto, Death Road To Canada’s planned release on April 25th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch has been postponed.

“We feel it would be deeply inappropriate to launch the game at such a time,” said Paul Hann, Managing Director of Ukiyo Publishing. “We would like to express our deepest condolences to everyone affected by the tragic events in Toronto.”

Ukiyo Publishing is currently working to reschedule the release which will be announced at a later date. We kindly ask media outlets to refrain from publishing reviews and content until then.
