Two Worlds 2 Gets North American, UK Release Date

BOOM widget 87278 Two Worlds II will launch in North America and the UK on January 25, 2011, TopWare Interactive has revealed, after it was delayed for reasons nobody could quite agree upon.

Reality Pump's fantasy RPG sequel was originally due to launch in September 2010 but was delayed for, according to North American publisher SouthPeak Games, "heavyweight quality assurance." However, TopWare, the game's European distributor, took issue with this, insisting that it was complete and only delayed to avoid a crowded release schedule.

Delightfully, the confusion between companies continues. Today's press release insists that "contrary to an earlier December press release" from SouthPeak, TopWare has the UK and Irish distribution rights, and says reports that it had to pay for them are wrong.

Crowded release schedule or no, Two Worlds II was released in Europe in November for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. TopWare claims that that over one million units were sold within three weeks. However, given the propensity for confusion, it's possible that they may have instead been fired at the Moon with a giant cannon.
