We also know our fans have high expectations for this title, and to that end, we have decided to move the release date to November 20th, 2012 for North America (including Canada) and Latin America territories. This will let us spend more time polishing and tuning the game, and it will give us a chance to incorporate some of the great feedback we’re receiving from the current limited beta to ensure we are creating the best possible fighting game experience.
For quality’s sake, Sony has postponed the release date by a month from October 23 to November 20. Oh well. Another month to wait for a showdown between Nathan Drake and Kratos. SuperBot Entertainment CEO Chan Park announced on the PlayStation Blog:
He goes on to say that it will be worth the wait. The new release date has All-Stars coming out a week after Black Ops 2 and on the same day as Hitman: Absolution, so it will have pretty stiff competition in November.
