Capcom’s biggest title of the summer, Lost Planet 3, has been delayed from its June 26 release date until August 27 in America. Originally scheduled to be released in early 2013, this is the second time the game has seen its launch date slip.
Capcom stated the game had been delayed for “business reasons,” indicating that Spark Unlimited could already be completed with the game.
Remember Me, their newest IP, will also launch in June, and Capcom has stated they want it to be a big franchise. No doubt they are clearing the schedule for as little competition as possible.
Lost Planet 3 is the first game in the series to be developed outside of Japan. It will return gamers to the icy planet of the first game, only this time they plan on telling a more mature storyline with less flare and robots.
Lost Planet 3 will be released on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on August 27.
