Alpha Protocol Officially Delayed to 2010

While an Alpha Protocol delay has been rumored for some time, it took publisher Sega until today--October 6, the day that Obsidisan's espionage role-playing game was supposed to be on store shelves--to confirm that the title is now due in 2010.

Official word on the delay emerged via the game's official site, which lists the PC and Xbox 360 editions for release on May 6 and the PlayStation 3 version for "Spring." Amusingly, Joystiq notes that the site was briefly listing all three as "out now."

Update: The game's official site has once again been revised, with all three versions--PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360--now listed for "Spring, 2010."

This marks the second major delay for the game, originally due in February 2009.

    Shame. Sega is really doing a shitty job with the PR. They couldn't even properly notify their customers of the delay.

    This long of a delay for a second time worries me too especially after that leak.

      It must have been a very recent decision too, since there's been magazine ads in at least the last month or two worth of gaming magazines.
