Dead Rising 2 Delayed, Coming September

Dead Rising 2 has been delayed until September 28. A press release from Capcom mentioned the new date as an announcement, which is normal enough — except that we already had an announced date of August 31 from the company’s X10 event. Treating the new date with no mention of a delay is a bit odd, but September it is.

No reason was given for the delay. Capcom could be giving the team extra time for polish, or the decision could be a strategic one. A late September release puts it in line with the bulk of titles targeting holiday sales, with enough time to drum up excitement and word-of-mouth before shoppers start invading stores. Putting it head-to-head against other autumn heavy-hitters might be showing a lot of faith in the game.
