inFamous 2 Release Date May Shock Spectators This Week

The amount of confirmed exclusives for the PlayStation 3 set for a release in 2011 exceeds an impressive 20 titles. Blockbuster hits such as The Last Guardian, Twisted Metal, Uncharted 3, Resistance 3, Sorcery, SOCOM 4 and the soon-to-be-released Killzone 3 are only a few of the games in Sony’s extensive line-up for this year. Another notable exclusive set for a launch in 2011 is Sucker Punch’s inFamous 2; the release date for the game, however, has yet to be unveiled, but that could very well change this week.

Last week Amazon possibly outed the game’s release date with a listing, which stated the sequel is set to electrify gamers on May 24th. The listing has since been taken down; further solidifying the case that the release date was real. Now, when asked when we can expect a solid release date for inFamous 2, Sony’s Jeff Rubenstein stated via the PlayStation Blog:

Could be as soon as late this week.

So, the May 24th release date previously listed by Amazon may in fact be accurate. However, fans can look forward to a possible release date this week if they don’t feel confident in Amazon’s mis-step.
