Two Worlds II Suffers Consequences of Gran Turismo 5 Delay

November 12, 2010Written by Jonathan Leack

Two Worlds II was recently delayed, and in-fact has already seen multiple delays. Even worse, if latest news is any indication, it might be delayed yet again.

CEO of TopWare, Dirk Hassinger, revealed some issues with the release of Two Worlds II on the PlayStation 3 in a recent forum post. The post by Dirk says the following (roughly translated from German):

“The PS3 version wasn’t delivered on schedule for release. We can choose our pressing plant for PC and 360, but unfortunately not for PS3. I’d preferably post the email and phone number of the lady responsible at Sony here. We’re hopping mad!”

According to the several posts by Dirk Hassinger, the cause of his concern lies in Sony’s unwillingness to print the game on time. A press release by TopWare has made an appearance for both the Xbox 360 and PC platforms, but the PS3’s has been withheld. Has the delay of Gran Turismo 5 caused a lack of print availability at Sony’s printing plant? Rumors suggest that GT5 is currently being printed in mass quantities and should be out within the next month, so the merging of the two could have caused issues.

Two Worlds II has an expected release date of January 1st, 2011.
