Originally planned for an October 20 launch in Japan, From Software's Armored Core V won't meet its scheduled date. The developer has announced the game has been pushed back until January 2012, following feedback from users who participated in a closed online beta recently.

We've contacted Namco for clarification and to see how this news affects the launch here in the US. The good news, though, is that mech oil doesn't ever go bad, so you don't have to throw out that stockpile you've got going in your garage.
