DC Universe Online has been delayed officially to 2011, announced Sony Online Entertainment in regards to the upcoming PS3 and PC MMO starring DC Comics superheroes.
The game was originally scheduled to be released on November 2nd this year, however the developers are apparently planning to take major pains to specifically address all of the complaints that the community has echoed regarding certain aspects of the game.
To quote SOE President John Smedley,
“The extra time will allow us to address community feedback in a meaningful way. When we get deeper into external beta, we’ll be able to share more information regarding the new launch date.”
Those who still pre-order DC Universe Online before November 15th will get early access to the beta by the end of November 2010, while those who wait till after the 15th won’t get access to the beta until a mere week before the game hits stores.
To make up for this bad news, a special DC Universe Online Collector’s Edition has been announced console PS3 version of the game to add to the already revealed PC version. It will include the following extras, which mirror what you get for the PC CE as well:
A DCUO Batman statue, limited edition Art of DC Universe Online art book, the DCUO Legends Issue #0 comic book with a Jim Lee variant cover, the DCUO Prestige comic presentation of the DCUO back-story and the limited edition Jim Lee-drawn poster Version of the Issue #0 comic book variant cover.
