Dead Rising 2 Delayed In Both North America & Europe

Capcom's zombie paradise action title Dead Rising 2 was supposed to be out on August 31 in North America and September 3 in Europe. It'll now miss both those dates.

The Japanese publisher just let us know that the game will now be out on September 28 in the US and Canada, while Europeans have to wait a few days long, until October 1.

No reason was given for the delay, but we'll update you if we hear anything more.

Kotaku AU Note: It's delayed here, too. Expect it out either September 30 or October 7. Capcom's Aussie distributor THQ will confirm that closer to the date.


    A 1 month delay isn't as horrible as it could have been. I was having nightmarish flashbacks to last year when so many AAA games were delayed until Jan on this year.

    Just make it good.

    Definitely one of my most looked forward to this year.

    Pfft, it wont come out in Australia at all without the R18+ rating.
    Everyone get it from the UK or US to teach them a lesson.

    I swear when I was on 20 mins ago it said Dead Space
    2. Meh! must be the Alzheimers.

    i think it has to do with dead rising case zero they want more time to get that out before dead rising 2, yeah i am worried about the australian version as you inject your daughter with needles(zombrex) and we all know what happened to fallout 3

      Fingers crossed they will see this as a medicine for the child. The problem with Fallout 3 originally was that you were injecting yourself with morphine which is a real world drug that you can become addicted to. Zombrex on the other hand is fictional, so it should be fine...I hope!

    Darn it. I just pre-ordered mine today :( But at least it isn't as bad as the Brink delay.
