If you were one of the many people looking forward to playing Carmageddon on your Android device this summer, you may be disappointed to learn that you'll have to wait slightly longer than expected.

Despite earlier promises that the Android port would arrive 'shortly after' the game's iOS release this summer (it's currently waiting for Apple's approval before it hits the App Store), the developers have now said that the game won't be available on the Play store until late 2012 or early 2013.

Unfortunately, we don't know the cause of the delay, or whether promising it 'shortly after' the iOS edition was too ambitious in the first place.

The good news is that the Android port is still very much in the cards, and when it's released in the coming months, it will remain faithful to the original version. Hopefully, we will see it available on a wide range of devices when it does see the light of day, but until then you could always roll back the clock and play the PC version instead.
