F.3.A.R. Release Date Delayed

By Ashley Woodcock, 5 years ago
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have confirmed to Gamespot that their upcoming game F.3.A.R. has been delayed, with the release now being pushed back to sometime in May. The game was originally set to release towards the end of 2010, but was then delayed and pushed back to 22 March 2011.

The WBIE representative also told Gamespot in a short and sweet manner, that they want to "deliver the best possible game for our consumers." No other comments where added in relation to the game's development.

I guess this gives us extra time to get the pre-orders in. Pre-orders from Gamestop will reward you with... The Hammer!:
