Two Worlds II Pushed Back to January 2011
Today, SouthPeak announced that it is pushing back the North American release of Two Worlds II to January in order to ensure that the game is "absolutely flawless" when it launches.
"We understand that this is not great news for those of you eager for an October release and we can understand that you might feel that our European cousins’ potentially getting the game before you is frustrating to say the least," said SouthPeak in a statement to the community. "However, there’s a reason for everything and although we feel that the game is truly at ‘AAA’ level, that reason is that we want Two Worlds II to be absolutely flawless when it launches in the North American market. Although we could bring the game to market earlier in order to take advantage of the holiday buying season, we felt that we would do a better service to you by making sure that the game you want is absolutely as it should be. It’s vital to us that we always give you the best possible information and this is the reason that we haven’t commented on the date before now; we did not want to say something to you, only to have that information change once again. Now, we are in a position to confirm the January release date." The SouthPeak team then went on to say that those who decide to torrent or import the game, rather than wait until January, would only be hurting those who worked hard to make the game, reducing the chance for another game in the future. Those who wait for the North American release, they say, will be rewarded with a more polished title. They also said that updates for the UK, Australia and New Zealand will be coming in the near future.
