Red Orchestra 2 Delayed

on August 8, 2011 11:24 AM

I’m assuming that after reading that dreadful title, you’re aware of what’s going down. The tactical first-person PC shooter — Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad¬† — has been pushed back two weeks for a September 13th release. Although most of you might be cursing under your breath due to impatience, know that the game’s slight delay is with reason.

“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 Interactive recently said in a statement. So although we might be getting the game two weeks from its original release date, we will be getting a more spiffy game with less bugs and a shiny Unreal Engine 3 engine.

The game is set to release on Steam, and other digital download stores, for a price of $39.99. Not too shabby.¬† And if you’re wondering if a console version is on the horizon, there’s zero news on any information regarding a console release. *sad face*
