The thinning Fall 2009 release list looks like it's getting one release thinner today, as online retailers are pointing to a delay for MAG, Zipper Interactive's massive action game for the PlayStation 3, which is now aiming for January 2010.
Both GameFly and GameStop are listing the title for release during the week of January 10, 2010. Those retailers were expecting MAG on November 24 of this year as of a week ago. At E3, Sony Computer Entertainment America pegged MAG's release date more vaguely, as a "Fall 2009" game.
While Sony hadn't yet applied a firm release date to the online shooter, it's looking less likely that the game will make that Fall window, if retailer listings are correct.
We've contacted SCEA to get confirmation, but have not yet heard back.
Kotaku AU Note: I spoke to the MD of SCE Australia earlier this week and, when discussing their 2009 titles, he did not mention MAG. Which means this reported delay is correct or it was never an '09 release in Australia... or we simply forgot to talk about it.
