Brütal Legend - produced by Tim Schafer, starring Jack Black, published by EA - will be out this October, Electronic Arts have announced this morning.

In North America, the game will be released on October 13. Europeans can get their hands on the game three days later, on October 16.

Tim Schafer is understandably chuffed:

Wooo! Having an official release date is awesome. And how cool is it that EA threw down the dough to have the name of an entire month changed to Rocktober?

It's very cool.
