The lights are on
UPDATE: Thankfully, everything got sorted out with Sniper Elite V2, and we're happy to report that the game is now available.
ORIGINAL STORY: Sniper Elite V2 was set to release today, but it looks like the game has received a surprise delay.
We called a few Game Stop stores around the US, as well as a Best Buy here in Minnesota, and all are telling us that the game is not in stock. Game Stop said that the game has suddenly been set for a May 9 release in their computer systems. A delay this close to the game's actual release probably has more to do with a production or nationwide shipping error, rather than something being wrong with the content of the game.
We posted our review today, and liked the game quite a bit.

Thats really weird....
It is out on steam apparently. So I would also guess a shipping problem, but wouldn't they then tell retailers to sell it as soon as it arrives?
Makes me think I won't be getting my, "two for one," testi-shot if I don't get a chance to impulse buy soon.
Yay Best Buy got props! :D
well. that sucks.
That sucks, but it's on Steam, so something somewhere must have gone wrong with the shipping.
Excuse me, but I was just playing my own copy of the game a few hours ago. Of course, it was from Steam, and they don't have to deal with such shipping issues.
Available on Steam phew... :)
that sucks for people who were looking forward to the game.
Wow, that's lame. Sucks to have to wait one more week :/
