Those retailer listings that pointed to a slip for Obsidian Entertainment's "espionage RPG" Alpha Protocol look more accurate today, as Sega has updated the game's ship date to spring of 2010, a full year after its originally planned release.
While Sega still hasn't responded to our multiple requests for confirmation on the delay, the publisher's official web site is typically a good resource for this kind of information. The PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC versions are all listed loosely for "Spring, 2010" but earlier today, some of those dates were for a more solid May 6, 2010.
We'd put that release date in pencil on your personal calendars, not pen. Just to be on the safe side.
