Shin Megami Tensei IV delayed until late October in Europe

Atlus has announced that Shin Megami Tensei IV, originally planned to release 11th September, is now releasing late October in Europe.
John Hardin, the PR Manager for Atlus USA, has tweeted the following:

After some unscheduled changes to the SMTIV mobile website raised some eyebrows, a lot of you asked for more details, so I’ll be upfront. We encountered a few last-minute issues specific to the EU version, and we have to fix them. Given the current timelines for production, it looks like SMTIV won’t be out in EU until late October.
No one likes delays. Our fans in Europe have been waiting for SMTIV for a *very* long time, and it pains us to have to move the release date back even further. I have talked to a few of you on Twitter, I’ve seen the angry posts on Reddit, NeoGAF, Facebook, etc., and wanted to be as direct as I could. We truly feel awful having to say “wait a little longer” for a game you’ve been so zealously patient for, but there is no other recourse. We’re doing everything we can to get the game out in Europe as fast as we can, so please bear with us.

Hopefully there won’t be any further delays, and we’d like more clarity on what bugs have been found that weren’t present in versions released overseas, but at least October isn’t too far away.

Spread the love!
