[UPDATE] 1Up is now reporting that Midway goofed. Someone forgot to add the PS3 release date to the press release. The game is not delayed. Anywhere. Look for it on shelves on September 17th.
No, not the sort of "delayed indefinitely" that really means it's been cancelled. The PC and Xbox 360 versions are still due out for the 27th of August but a PS3 release date was suspiciously absent from the press release. Dutch site PS3Only.com contacted Midway for a statement. They replied saying that Stranglehold
is "definitely out this year" but it has "no confirmed street date as yet."
We're a bit confused about why this would happen, but we're not as disheartened as you might expect. The estimated release date before the delay was September 17th. We'll still be incredibly busy with Lair
and Heavenly Sword
at that point. Still, it's not a good precedent to set. This sort of thing had better not become a trend.
