It’s a rarity when a game’s release date is pushed forward instead of back, but IO Interactive and Square Enix announced today that this will be the case with Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days. Wrapping the news in with their “gone gold” announcement, Dog Days will now release one week prior to the previous retail date of August 17, 2010.

“The team has worked hard to deliver a game that’s different from the current trend of third-person shooters and we’re so pleased to be able to share it with the world ahead of schedule,” said Niels Jørgensen, general manager of IO Interactive. “With development now complete, why keep people waiting any longer? We want to let gamers experience the game we’ve created and get them online betraying their friends in Fragile Alliance, so we have decided to bring the release date forward by one week.”
