If you guys are anything like me, you’ve been eagerly anticipating Blue Castle’s sandbox zombie bashing title Dead Rising 2. Unfortunately for gamers looking to get their pitchfork shotgun on, today Capcom announced that Dead Rising 2 has been delayed.
Originally slated to arrive August 31 on the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, DR2 is now set to hit North American stores on September 28. European gamers looking to crack some zombie skulls will have to wait until October 1.
As of right now, Capcom has yet to say why there is a delay, only offering the line, “We are happy to confirm today that… Dead Rising 2, is set for release across North America on September 28, 2010.” Many are speculating that is has something to do with the Xbox 360-exclusive “downloadable prologue” titled ‘Case Zero.’ What adds a little more confusion into the mix is that Capcom has yet to announce when Case Zero will be released.
Personally, I’m alright with this delay. As I’ve said in the past, I’m cool with game delays, so long as the extra time is utilized to make the game better. Another reason I’m not too upset about this delay is that I now get to play DR2 a little closer to October (the spookiest month of all). Maybe I’m weird but there is just something about October that make all horror related things ten times better.
Enough of my stupid musings. What do you guys think about this? Are you cool with this delay? Is DR2 on your radar? On a side note, do you agree with my thoughts on October being the spookiest month of all?
