Piranha Bytes' upcoming pirate-themed RPG, Risen 2: Dark Waters, won't be making its way to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles until July 31, 2012, publisher Deep Silver confirms. This is the game's second delay since March, when the date was moved from April 24 to May 22.
The PC version of Risen 2 is still on track to release this week, on April 27. There's been no comment from Deep Silver on the reason for the delay, but it presumably has everything to do with ensuring that the console release is ready for primetime. The first Risen scored reasonably well with critics in its PC release, but the console version left many an RPG fan wanting due to its inferior quality.
