DC Universe Online, the Sony Online Entertainment-published MMO featuring characters like Superman, Batman and the Green Lantern, has some good news and bad news!
The bad news is that the game’s release has been bumped back to “Early 2011”. Circa the press release:
"SOE is dedicated to delivering the highest quality game experiences possible," says John Smedley, President of Sony Online Entertainment. "DC Universe Online is the first game of its kind, and a truly massive undertaking — the first action MMO set in the DC Universe, the first MMO on the PlayStation®3, and the first time the entire DC Universe will be accessible to the millions of fans who are eagerly anticipating its release. As the game heads into external beta testing, this 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."
While that stinks, the good news is that you can expect a strong showing from the game at the upcoming New York Comic Con later this week. Festivities will include a panel, press event and fan party.
