Developer Says Two Worlds II Is Done, Despite Delay

Publisher SouthPeak Interactive recently delayed the RPG Two Worlds II until sometime in early 2011, stating that it wanted time to polish the game until it was "flawless." Apparently, no one told developer Topware Interactive (which is co-developing the title with Reality Pump). A representative for the company told Gamespot that the game has been finished since mid-September and, in fact, will be released in some European territories (via publisher Zuxxez) on October 21.

Topware asserts that the game was moved to 2011 in order to avoid the very competitive 2010 holiday season.

"Truth be told, fans only have so much time to spend playing these content-rich games, and there were concerns our title could potentially be lost in the fanfare," TopWare managing director James Seaman said in a statement. "Our publishing partner SouthPeak, to their credit, has acknowledged this fact and made an adjustment, postponing their launch of Two Worlds II into early 2011."

The version of the game that releases in 2011 will be identical to the European release, with the possible exception of some post-release patches and bug fixes that might be added to the retail disc in the U.S.
