Quake Wars PS3, X360 Arriving in Europe May 30; North American Release on May 27?

The console editions of id Software and Splash Damage's class-based multiplayer shooter Enemy Territory: Quake Wars will hit Europe on May 30, IGN reports. Both are based on the PC edition that arrived late last year.

While publisher Activision has yet to specify a date for North America, several retailers--including EBGames and Amazon.com--are listing a May 27 release. While retailer dates are usually considered placeholder until confirmed by a publisher, the date's proximity to the European release gives it some credence.

Shacknews has contacted Activision for more information. Check back with us later this week for hands-on impressions of the console versions, which were ported to the Xbox 360 care of Nerve Software and the PlayStation 3 by Activision Foster City, previously known as Z-Axis.
