For the longest time now, we've heard that the public beta for Resistance 2 was scheduled for late September. However, now we're hearing that it's being pushed back to early October. The news comes as a mild-mannered note attached to a Resistance 2 press release regarding the North American release date (which is November 4 by the way).

We suspect the slight delay is a direct repercussion of the SOCOM: Confrontation beta delay. With the SOCOM beta running slightly behind schedule, the R2 beta probably found itself following footsteps. The SOCOM beta now ends by October 5, and we'd expect the R2 beta to start no earlier than that.
