Were you expecting Brink to release on May 17th in North America and May 20th in Europe and the UK, across Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC platforms.
Not any more, if a Twitter message from Xbox frontman Major Nelson is to be believed (which it is).
This awesome-looking first-person shooter from Splash Damage and Bethesda Softworks is now due for release on May 10th in North America and May 13th everywhere else!
Here’s the tweet from Major Nelson:
“Bethesda just send me an email saying that Brink will release one-week earlier than planned. New dates: North America: May 10, Europe May 13”
If you need a bit of a refresher course on Brink, you’re invited to rummage through El33online’s previous looks at the game for healthy doses of screenshots, videos and trailers, as well as additional information on this exciting singleplayer/multiplayer hybrid shooter.
[Update] Bethesda Softworks has confirmed the date change for Brink with a statement, as VP of PR and Marketing for Bethesda Softworks Pete Hines said:
“Production wrapped on Brink earlier than we planned and we didn’t see any reason to keep gamers from getting their hands on this highly anticipated game as soon as it was ready.
“It’s apparent from the tremendous reaction so far that people are eager to jump online and play, and if we can make that happen earlier – we’re going to.”
