Two Worlds II Delayed Until January 2011

It was just announced that Two Worlds II will be delayed until early 2011. Originally set to release in just a few weeks, SouthPeak revealed that Two Worlds II will see a delay till early 2011 to guarantee the game reaches a high-level of perfection and doesn't make the mistakes of the first game. (PC, PS3, Two Worlds II, Xbox 360)

Demon souls aside, Theres no real Online RPG with lasting appeal on ps3 for me.
One of the reasons I purchase ps3 was for Monster Hunter Tri and that got thrown on Wii and now Xbox are getting a PC version which still leaves us PS3 gamers in the dark.

This game might just fill that spot for me until something better comes out.

Good it got delayed imo, I want the devs to put some real effort into this game.

It got delayed because it didnt want to go head to head with Aracania, Fallout New Vegas, and Fable 3.

you might be right. all the games you mentioned have strong followings and fans will definately be picking those up. hopefully it turns out good. i just couldnt bring myself to play the first one after the first 15 minutes.
JsonHenry  +   1698d ago
Yeah, placing yourself right after the holidays when people go spend the cash/gift cards they got for the holiday's is a good place to be.

well i was more interested in Two worlds 2 than all the titles you mentioned
Daver  +   1698d ago
that sucks, Holiday 2010 is not that good holiday for games in my opinion. Now that this game and LBP move to 2011, theres only few titles i'm interested in, well ''interested'' its not even games i'm looking forward like Portal 2 and Infamous 2, it is just games that are coming out that 'might' grab my attention.

It really is the worst holiday season this gen, some great games coming out but not so many that I have to pick and chose games like the last few years. But it looks like it'll be the best late winter early spring this gen.

it is if you've got a PC !
Daver  +   1697d ago

I bought a new PC but i'm keeping it for diablo 3, this is the only game i love to play on PC
MMFGaming  +   1698d ago
That's a real shame. Oh well --hopefully it'll get some love in 2011.
bigtrucknd  +   1698d ago
Hope it does'nt end up being crap like Alpha Protocol probably will that is why they delayed out of fear of Fallout and rest of holiday releases.

thought same about AP
but then i tried stealth mode and it was really fun experience. shooting? sucked

AP would be great if they'd put same amount of thoughts on all aspects of gameplay, instead they focused on some and miserably failed other

OMG can this be another CoD victim?? altho they r diff kind of games but all games suffer from CoD D:
blahblah  +   1698d ago
yeah [sarcasm]
just like this years car models will be delayed because Toy'r'us is putting new Barbie on the shelves.

I doubt there is one RPG fan who would prefer CoD over online RPG. well,... if he does, he is no RPG fan.

STFU u ret**ed are all the ppl who will buy this game RPG fans?? some RPG fans are also FPS fans did u know, chill out kid
blahblah  +   1698d ago
lol, me responding with a joke and you with insult... then i need to chill out? hahaha, that probably shows really good who the kid was here.

and i don't know almost anyone (RPG fan) who would trade some rpg (rare in this generation) for fps (new shooter every week and as person who doesn't play them, they all look like one rehashed game to me).

Bigpappy  +   1698d ago
I was looking forward to this game
I was going to grab this, Fable and 2K10 for my core gaming this holiday season. Oh well.

article kinda sounds
that only NA release got delayed, anyone knows about european?

this part kinda confuzes me

"and we can understand that you might feel that our European cousins’ potentially getting the game before you is frustrating to say the least. 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"

i don't know whether to be excited or insulted as an european. kinda like saying, we can buy crap for more (games are way more expensive here than in NA).
ironcreed  +   1698d ago
Yes, it comes out in Europe on October 21st.
CranberryPub  +   1698d ago
Mainland Europe only
The UK release date is still unclear.

Pre-order canceled and Southpeak suck. They wait a week before it is supposed to come out and then announce a delay, lol. I saw it coming from a mile away, though. I'll probably just import the PS3 version which comes out October 21st in Europe or just buy it used one day.

Really....is that why you pre-ordered it, genius? /rolleyes

Wait, the US release has been pushed back for polishing but not the European release?

From IGN's article- "By importing the game, you're paying more money for something that if you can wait, you'll be able to buy in January at a cheaper price and that will have benefited from heavyweight Quality Assurance for the North American market."

So basically, the EU version will be inferior to the US version? That's a strange decision. Why not push back both releases and release the final product in January for everyone?
ironcreed  +   1698d ago
They are full of it and this only proves it. The game is done, they simply do not want to compete with the massive holiday line-up.

Gothic 4 here I come.
HeroXIV  +   1698d ago
Have you played the Gothic 4 demo? Wasn't that great imo.

I'm a little saddened by the TW2 delay it was, after GT5, my most wanted game this year. :(
militant07  +   1698d ago
fall 2009 all over again!
FCOLitsjustagame  +   1698d ago
Probably just as well due to all the other games coming out at the same time. Maybe I will consider getting it full price in Jan.....if they fixed all the issues from 1.
