Dead Rising 2 Delayed Until September

The release of Blue Castle's open-world zombie-smasher Dead Rising 2 has been pushed back by four weeks to September 28, publisher Capcom has announced.

No reason is given as Capcom simply states "We are happy to confirm today that... Dead Rising 2, is set for release across North America on September 28, 2010."


It's yet unclear whether this delay will affect the launch of the Xbox 360-exclusive "downloadable prologue" Case Zero due before release or the horrendous live-action movie Zombrex: Dead Rising Sun, though neither has had an actual release date so far.

The simultaneous PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 launch is now scheduled for September 28 in North America, or October 1 in Europe according to Eurogamer.
