BT Games at it again: Dead Space 3 outed in pre-order offer

Written by: / / No Comments

South African videogame retailer BT Games has a history of breaking the news on unannounced titles, the last of which was God of War IV which the store slapped with a February 23rd 2013 release date along with a pre-order offer.

Of course, we couldn’t pass up the chance to order the game.

The latest game to be outed by BT Games before an official announcement? Dead Space 3, published by… 2K Games? Magical.

Now available to pre-order on BT Games’ website is Dead Space 3, but according to the content page, the game is published by 2K Games, with a release date of 2011.

Here’s a pic of the Xbox 360 pre-order (with proper publisher):

And the PS3 Pre-order page (notice the ‘2K Games’ publisher):

Dead Space 3 Pre-Order - PS3

We won’t be pre-ordering this time, folks (if it was published by EA, we would consider it), but this is getting a bit ridiculous.

In this case, it’s most probably a placeholder for a pre-order page to go live at a later date (with temporary information, such as 2K Games as opposed to EA), but allowing the page to go live in the first place is quite a blunder.

We’ll see how long it takes for the page to come down.
