The lights are on
Peggle 2, previously touted as an Xbox One Launch title has moved its release into December, effectively making it a launch window game.
Speaking with VentureBeat, developer PopCap's senior director of PR Garth Chouteau said, “Peggle 2 is a ‘launch timeframe’ title, but [it] will not launch day-and-date with the Xbox One — instead, it will become available a few weeks later in December.”
PopCap is not ready to put forward a specific date saying that it will release sometime in December.

Our TakePeggle 2 is smaller game compared to launch titles like Dead Rising 3 or Forza 5, but it was a game I was personally very excited about. I'm glad to hear that it will still be available shortly after the console's launch, but I am disappointed I won't be throwing marbles at pegs while a unicorn monitors my progress in the early morning hours of November 22.
