Sacred 2 Release Update: Console Versions Pushed to February, PC Version on for November


OK, what in the world is going on with Sacred 2? First the PC version was supposed to ship September 30th, but as I reported earlier this month it was pushed back to November 7th to ship alongside the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions. But now the schedule has changed again. Within the message I received from CDV this afternoon containing that rockin’ new Blind Guardian trailer was news that the console versions have been pushed all the way back to February 2009 while the PC version is standing firm for a November launch.

In light of this latest change I’m left wondering why the PC version was delayed in the first place — if it’s still not going to ship alongside the consoles what was the point? It went gold in Europe last week and the preview build I received late last month seems pretty complete, so September 30th certainly seems plausible. I suppose this is just CDV trying to position the game’s release for the holidays, though I would argue that the game would have a much better chance of succeeding on the market right now than in the thick of the holiday rush…
