Update 2: The delay has now been made official by BioWare. The PC and Xbox 360 editions are now due to hit North America on November 3, with the PlayStation 3 version slated to arrive at some unknown point later in the month.
Update: BioWare has chimed in on the matter, telling Shacknews that it is "still targeting an October 20 release date" for Dragon Age: Origins and adding that "if the release date changes, we'll issue a press release."
Original: Those that have been waiting years for Dragon Age may have to wait a few more weeks, as it's beginning to look like BioWare's latest RPG won't hit consoles in October.
While BioWare and studio owner Electronic Arts have yet to officially acknowledge a delay, online rental hub GameFly is now listing the Xbox 360 edition for November 3 with the PlayStation 3 release following on November 19. The change was just made this week; GameFly had previously listed the game's announced release date of October 20.
Meanwhile, Newegg currently expects both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 editions to arrive on November 4, with the PC version still slated for October 20. As with GameFly, Newegg had previously listed the console releases for October 20.
We've reached out to BioWare for clarification, and will update accordingly.
Full Disclosure: GameFly is the parent company of Shacknews.
Sigh. Why even have release dates anymore?
I like them. They aren't always accurate, but they sort of give you a ball park date as to when to expect it.
You count years worth of delays as still "in the ballpark"? Dayum.
