Red Faction: Armageddon delayed until June 7

Red Faction: Armageddon's release is delayed until June 7.


Publisher THQ has sent word that players looking forward to a return trip to Mars will have to wait a little longer. Originally planned for a May 31 release, Red Faction: Armageddon has been delayed until June 7.

Console gamers looking forward to sampling Armageddon before release will still be able to do so, thanks to the previously announced demo that's now due on May 3rd for Xbox 360. The PlayStation 3 demo is also slated to release on that day as well, but will be contingent on whether or not Sony is able to restore the PlayStation Network by then. Sadly, a PC demo isn't planned.

In the meantime, be sure to check out our hands-on impressions of Red Faction: Armageddon single-player and multiplayer components.

      I'm pretty disappointed in no pc demo. The pc version for the first one ran horribly and there's no way I'd buy this one without seeing how it ran first.

        I thought the same thing but then the guys suggested to disable occlusion (I think) and it ran like a dream.

          Yeah that' makes a huge improvement, but even with that off it doesn't run as well as I'd expect :(

      Odd amount of delay, just a week. Wonder what prompted that need.

        Such a short delay is probably to avoid a clash with another title, what else comes out that week?!

        Probably failed certification and had to be resubmitted.
