Sony Online Entertainment announced a delay of DC Universe Online
, from its announced November 2
release date until "early 2011." Or, in comic book terms, SOE rebooted the universe, creating a reality where the game was always going to be released in early 2011. "As the game heads into external beta testing, this extra time will allow us to address community feedback in a meaningful way," SOE president John Smedley said. "When we get deeper into external beta, we'll be able to share more information regarding the new launch date."
There's sort of good news if you still want to spend your November (or at least part of it) playing DCUO. If you've already pre-ordered, or if you do so before November 15, you'll be "assured access to the beta by November 30 (North America only)." If you miss that deadline, you'll get access a week before launch, and you'll get to take part in the "Battle of the Legends" event at the end of beta, along with the other people who will have had months to get way, way better than you.
