Speaking with GameSpot, TopWare's managing director, James Seaman, said the primary reason for the Two Worlds 2 delay was to avoid an "exceptionally crowded" holiday release calendar of RPGs. According to Seaman, Reality Pump--the game's developer--finished all "production, bug testing and localization" work earlier this month. TopWare, which oversaw Reality Pump, plans to release the game in a few select territories on October 21. A January 2011 release in North America is still planned.
We can already tell this whole situation is going to make for one hell of an awkward Christmas party.
