Red Orchestra 2 delayed into September

No strategy is static in times of war, and Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad's battleplan is no exception. Developer Tripwire Interactive announced today that the PC WW2 shooter-sim's launch has been delayed from August 30 to September 13.

"While we understand the fans are clamoring to get their hands on the game, we felt we needed the extra two weeks to get it right and add the extra polish the game (and the players) deserve," Tripwire explained. Consider it the video games equivalent of waiting two weeks for anti-tank gun support rather than advancing with only anti-tank dogs.

You can pre-order Orchestra 2 now for $35.99 from Steam, or only $31.99 if you own the original Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45. There's also a fancy $50 Steam Digital Deluxe Edition, which packs goodies including beta access, WW2 reenactor playable characters for Killing Floor, and new Team Fortress 2 hats.
