Okay, apparently SOE is delaying the European launch of the game.

The US launch is not affected.

I don't have the details, but that's what I was told.  I'd expect a more official release sometime soon in regards to the EU version.

Thank you Petroglyph for being here in the dark ages of RTS gaming! May your bright torch lead the way for other developers led astray.  You make me happy as long as you stay alive, and I will dedicate my life to thee to make this dream come true!

THATS THE PLAN!!!!!!!!! SEGA want to earn more cash by removing a link in the food "Cash" chain. Then they can start their own online store since they can charge whatever they want for the game since they got monopol.

Hmm.. No it dosn't work that way eather.. So whats the intention >.>

Hi all, yep, Adam is correct, at this point it looks like the EU release is being delayed until January. From the Sega Europe press release:

The game, which is amongst the first of a new wave of titles that offer Cross Platform gaming between Xbox 360 and the PC, will be released in January 2008 in Europe.  The new release date means that both the PC version and Xbox 360 version will launch closer together, allowing gamers to enjoy the full experience of this fantastic RTS from acclaimed developer, Petroglyph.

Is there any reason for it just being the European release that has been delayed?

Whyyyyyyy!? >.< Why must Europe be screwed over so much?   This is really really annoying. First the beta, then the game itself.

If it was an overall delay to the game, fine enough, but just Europe just blows. And many agrees.

I'm sorry for I sound harsh, it's just becoming very hard to have this happening all the time with all games and even beta's.  This is such a silly choice, there are other people then americans out there >.<

FFS..

Thanks to both of you (Driph and Adam) for updating us. Just goes to show that even though you guys are making this game, you are the last to know (before us). WP Sega! :(

I don't understand tho why the EU gets delayed - especially months. This isn't weeks.. this is months. Why oh why? surely there's gonna be more issue with the american release since there are more ppl. *sighs*

Hmm, somebody better let CVG know its only european version then. And if they really did get their info from SEGA, then clarification to SEGA too. Ah, the wonderful quirks of business communication.  :D

The blame falls squarely on Sega Europes shoulders for the lack of effort they have put into Marketing. Myself and Raiden have been saying this all along well before the CGI teaser came out, and yet they've done nothing. The severe lack in marketing communication within Sega is seriously disturbing. And this is what happens...

I hope something gets done with this but I doubt it.. Gah.. The trouble to have to import is just so damn bothersome -.-  

The marketing for this game has been s@!$ <.< Live sub crap, poor advertisement(Which has improved I'll admit), then this.

Can't something be done?
