Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway Suffers Delay, Limited Edition Revealed

By Chris Faylor, Jul 28, 2008 9:17am PDT Update: Gearbox Software has confirmed to Shacknews that Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway (PC, PS3, 360) has indeed been delayed until September.

"We'll be gold in August, but it looks like the actual shelf date will be in September," Gearbox president Randy Pitchford told Shacknews.

Though an exact date is still undecided, he noted that "late September is the anniversary of Operation Market Garden, so I think it would be really poetic if the game launched on the anniversary."

Pitchford added that the Limited Edition, which includes an action figure of Sergeant Matt Baker, "is really a nice one and quantities there will be limited, so now would be a great time for people who are anticipating the game to lock in a pre-order."

Original Story: Retailer listings for Gearbox Software's Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway (PC, PS3, 360) suggest the World War II shooter has been delayed by a month and have also revealed a limited edition version of the game.

Originally announced for an August 26 release, the game is now due on September 23, according listings at multiple reatilers, including Gamestop and Amazon.

While retailer listings are often considered placeholder, the uniformity of the date among multiple retailers, especially in the wake of an officially announced date, indicates that they received word of a slight delay from publisher Ubisoft.

In addition, those listings detailed a Limited Edition of the game, which will pack a "Fully articulated, high-quality, 6" collectible action figure [of Sergeant Matt Baker] with 13 accessories," a comic book, and a map of Operation Market Garden at a $10 premium.

  • IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
    For those unaware of the existing software development status, it is important to understand that the Playstation 3 is a bitch. Any attempts to develop and/or release any game among the public for the Playstation 3 will be delayed. Furthermore, other platforms that intend to release the same game will suffer delays as a result of the Playstation 3 being a bitch. Therefore, if one believes the initial release date for any form of software releasing on the Playstation 3 without a minimum of 3 months of delays is a chum... or chumpette.
