Dead Rising 2 Delayed In Both North America & Europe

Illustration for article titled Dead Rising 2 Delayed In Both North America & Europe

Capcom's zombie paradise action title Dead Rising 2 was supposed to be out on August 31 in North America and September 3 in Europe. It'll now miss both those dates.


The Japanese publisher just let us know that the game will now be out on September 28 in the US and Canada, while Europeans have to wait a few days longer, until October 1. No reason was given for the delay, but we'll update you if we hear anything more.


At least it's not that long of a wait. Anyone notice this fall's comparatively bare compared to spring 2011?

I'm worried we'll be seeing more delays once publishers realize that this next spring's more packed than last fall—which is the whole reason why so many good titles came out this spring. The reason they did so well, of course, were that they were massive titles like Mass Effect 2, Bioshock 2, and Bad Company 2.

Basically, what I'm getting that is that I'm worried we'll be seeing some rather large delays to fall 2011.
