Confirming the rumoured October 13th release date that’s been on the ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ page for a while, the official release date for Brutal Legend has been announced by Electronic Arts through a press release: October 13th for the US, and three days later on October 16th for Europe.
Referring to the title of EA’s press release, Brutal Legend designer Tim Schafer had the following to say about the news:
“Wooo! Having an official release date is awesome. And how cool is it that EA threw down the dough to have the name of an entire month changed to Rocktober?”
This is obviously excellent news, and it’s good to see a confirmed release date after what seems like an eternity of delays and publishing problems — don’t forget that Brutal Legend would have come out late last year if the original plan had stuck. But you know what? It probably wouldn’t have been nearly as awesome.
