UPDATE: This shit just got confusing. VG247 has just emailed SCEE about it and, well, SCEE are retracting the October date.
Honestly, either this is a retraction or someone’s made a poo-poo. Cant wait to see the inbox for GO.
UPDATE 2: Yup, it was a honest mistake. Our guy at SCEE emailed GOONL!NE about an hour ago to let us know that the October date was for review code and assets. So, it still remains at Autumnn… for now. But it is coming.
Original Story: Only known for a Fall release date thus far, Uncharted 2 will launch in Europe for PLAYSTATION 3 in October, thats what SCEE has told GOONL!NE this afternoon when we went to SCEE about a specfic release date.
In an email to GO, a SCEE rep told us that, while no exact specfic date was confirmed, the game is “currently scheduled for an October release.” However, we were told that a specfic date would be coming “closer to launch”.
When it was revealed back at the Spike Video Game Awards in December, it was announced for a Fall 2009 release date. And only last week, Naughty Dog co-president Evan Wells confirmed that a date would be coming very soon in a PS Blog livetext, but still had it down as Fall.
It was only confirmed today that GameTrailers would show a brand new 3 minute cutscene of the game never shown before, as well as a brand new level also never seen before, in their Uncharted 2 themed episode this week.
