Back in October 2010 we revealed that the release date for F.E.A.R. 3 had been pushed back until March 22, 2011, however now we are hearing that Warner Bros. Interactive has pushed bay until May, no more specific release date has been given yet.
There has been no official reason given for the new delay, back in May, 2010 we posted a trailer video showing gameplay footage, therefore we would have expected Day 1 Studios to meet their March, 2011 release date, let’s just hope that the game is worth the wait.
It has now been almost two years since the release of F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin therefore fans of the F.E.A.R game series will probably be disappointed by this news, however as I always say it is better to delay a game rather than release something which is not ready to go public.
Video games tend to come out on Tuesdays, therefore it would be fair to say that F.E.A.R. 3 should become available in store on either the 3rd, 10th, 17th or 24th of May 2011.
Best Buy has acknowledged this change in release date and currently have May 24th listed as its release date (see image below), they could be playing things safe and listing the last Tuesday in May 2011 as the release date, or perhaps they have heard something from Warner Bros.
As we hear more regarding the reason for the delay and the new release date we will keep you posted, are you frustrated by yet another delay?
