Two Worlds II: UK Gamers Face Another Release Date Delay

UK gamers appear to have been delivered another blow in regards to the upcoming Two Worlds II game today, when it was announced that the game’s release date had suffered yet another delay. As we previously mentioned here, UK gamers were originally expecting the game at the end of January.

The next UK launch date that was given was February 4th, but this was changed again yesterday to February 18th. However, according to a recent article by Matthew Reynolds over at digitalspy.co.uk, TopWare Interactive has now revealed that the game won’t be arriving now until February 25th.

The publisher’s managing director James Seaman spoke to Eurogamer about the delay, and said that the shipment — which contained the Two Worlds II Collector’s Edition and other components — that was heading to the UK from China had unfortunately been wrecked.

He then went on to explain that the company is currently printing some off in Europe, while the boxes are being air freighted from China. As Robert Purchese from eurogamer.net recently reported, the Two Worlds II game was originally meant to be an autumn 2010 release title.

What do you think of all the release date delays this game has suffered?

Personally i think that the excuse "the packaging was damaged" is a load of bullshit. If that really was the problem then we wouldnt be seeing strange events such as amazon getting the selling rights and multiple date changes. Think about it, if the packaging was damaged and the problem was linked solely to the uk, then the fix time could be calculated. The amount of times this game has been booted back recently suggests that people have been holding out for something. Maybe a deal with amazon, maybe shitty dick head way of advertising by building up interest before… Read more »

Everywhere today, told me it was out officially today, yet its only available for pre-order from Amazon and wont be released until March 1st, its a fecking joke to say the least, i went out with every intention of buying it despite all the delays, and because everyone got messed around once again, i've gone and bought 3 pre-owned games instead with what i would've spent on this one, theres another £40 they've missed out on and i've no intention of buying it now until its at least £20 second hand with which the publisher still wont have had my… Read more »

i think that nobody, even if they really want this game like me, should buy it. They seem to be doin this with alot of games now, surely it should be some kind of false advertising. i am cancelling my pre order and just gonna go with dragon ages. two worlds 2 could have been a really good game if they had released it when they said they was, now noone with any self respect should buy it. NEVER PRE ORDER AGAIN IT!!!!!! THEY ARE JUST PIRATES!!!! lolol

This really is absurd
I thought the lame excuses would stop once the rights of this game were taken from the incompetent hands oif South Peak.
A quiet word to TopWare – if you are going to invent an excuse, make it less lame than this one you have come up with. It is just an insult to your PAYING customers' intelligence.

Don’t worry ppl apparently 25 will b last delay according to this that I found on eurogamer ! “We just received the container from China with the Collector’s Edition and other components and they are wrecked,” TopWare managing director James Seaman informed Eurogamer. “Several components were just a total wreck and unacceptable for us to give out to our fans. “We are printing some of these in Europe now and the boxes are being air freighted from China. “Officially, launch is the 25th, and this is final. “I cannot believe this but it is really happening!” he added. So let’s… Read more »

Final Straw for me. Just another excuse. Only got so much money to spend and I'm not gonna keep saving it for a game that appears will never be released! I'm off to the shops to find something else. I'll buy it second hand if it ever materialises.

The ship carrying the cargo was wrecked? Huh, that's quite an excuse (and a perfectly legit one if true) but surely they should just be honest and say "look, we are trying – but we are going to have to set a new date of April or something".

Every week I look forward to getting that dispatched email from Game and every time I've just got the 'delayed' email. Humph. Was so looking forward to it.
