Dark Souls 2 is hitting PCs on May 31, according to Amazon’s listing for the downloadable version of the game.
While the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions are still releasing on March 11 as far as we know, the PC version will show up two and a half months later. This is the first indication of a release date for the PC version, which was previously set to release “shortly thereafter.”
It’s not a surprise for PC games to come out later than console versions, but usually it’s two weeks, not two months. The first Dark Souls had a bit of a troubled PC release with a locked resolution and lower textures, so our inclination is to believe that this is to get the PC version right rather than for the piracy reasons bigger publishers like Ubisoft usually cite.
If that’s the case, we’re happy to wait until they figure out a way to properly port the game.
