Playstation All-Stars Battle Royal Rescheduled For Nov. 20
Fearing that the game won’t be ready in time for its planned October release date, Sony has opted to push the release of Playstation All-Stars battle Royal to November 20, 2012. The announcement was made on the official Playstation blog.
This is about a month past the original date, which suggests they’re choosing to polish the game more than anything else. It also suggests considerable confidence in the game This puts the launch just prior to the Thanksgiving holiday and Black Friday. There’s a lot of competition for gamer dollars during that week; then again, it isn’t like PS3 has a ton of terribly cool exclusives launching this Christmas, so no doubt PS3 owners will lap this up.
Anyway, here’s the official statement:
Hello PlayStation Nation. As you know, we at SuperBot have set high benchmarks for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. Our goal is to deliver a fun, well-balanced, and compelling gameplay experience that pays homage to all of these incredible characters.
We also know our fans have high expectations for this title, and to that end, we have decided to move the release date to November 20th, 2012 for North America (including Canada) and Latin America territories. This will let us spend more time polishing and tuning the game, and it will give us a chance to incorporate some of the great feedback we’re receiving from the current limited beta to ensure we are creating the best possible fighting game experience. While it is our greatest desire to put this game into the hands of our fans as soon as possible, we do not want to do so at the sake of quality. The additional time will be well worth the wait, and are excited to know that our fans will have the ultimate brawler in time for the holiday.
Keep an eye on GamesCom this week, as we’ve lined up some big announcements that we’re sure you’ll be excited about.
Thanks again for all of your support and understanding!
