The Dog Days of Summer Begin One Week Early For Kane & Lynch


IO Interactive has announced a new ship date for Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days, and no, the game hasn’t been delayed. On the contrary, the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 crime drama has already gone gold and will, in fact, ship one week ahead of schedule. That puts the North American release date at August 17th and the European/PAL release date at August 20th — the Japanese version’s August 26th launch date remains unchanged.

“The team has worked hard to deliver a game that’s different from the current trend of third-person shooters and we’re so pleased to be able to share it with the world ahead of schedule,” said Niels Jørgensen, general manager of IO Interactive. “With development now complete, why keep people waiting any longer? We want to let gamers experience the game we’ve created and get them online betraying their friends in Fragile Alliance, so we have decided to bring the release date forward by one week.”

Here is a brand new multiplayer trailer, along with another round of screenshots.
