September 22, 2009Written by Sebastian Moss

Uncharted 2, Sony’s highly anticipated sequel to the third-person action platformer Uncharted: Drakes Fortune, may be receiving top scores across the board, as well as having a tremendously enjoyable beta, but one problem has been bothering European fans – it’s release date.

Due to all the hubbub and excitement regarding Uncharted 2: Among Thieves it would have been easy to forget that the game was never actually given a European release date. The gorgeous action game was initially slated to launch on the 23rd of October, but the date was quickly withdrawn by developer Naughty Dog’s Twitter.

Now, Sony has officially announced that the game will reach European shores on the 16th of October, a mere 3 days after its US release. Although many retailers have already announced that the the game would release on the 16th, it is reassuring that the date is now officially set in stone.
