Eyjafjallajökull Volcano Affecting Video Game Release Dates

Eruption2010eyja If you’ve been reading the news or listening on TV, chances are you’ve seen or heard something about this volcano in Iceland, Eyjafjallajökull, that was dormant for nearly 200 years, and how it’s affected air travel in Europe, with planes not risking flying and getting all that volcanic ash clogging up their engines and so on.

It’s obvious when you think about it, but this is also affecting video game releases in Europe, the UK, and down here in SA, even. Quite a number of titles have been delayed reportedly, including Dead to Rights: Retribution, God of War Collections, and Scene it? Twilight, all originally scheduled for this month, but now possibly delayed until next month or at least when the dust settles, or ash clears, more appropriately.

Kotaku Australia also claims there are delays there too. And in Iceland, where the Volcano is actually situated, there are concerns for Icelandic game development studios, such as CCP, who made EVE Online.
Thanks for all your hard work, Lazygamer.

What does AAA stand for?

It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
