I'm confused or have lost track. Is this known about already (sorry if so, and yes I added the trollface)

Cool, I wondered if it was just me (and even did a search to see if I dreamt the April bit)

Anyway, for those in US/Canada who are running out of patience (not a good sign if you are going to buy this btw) then have a look here to purchase the EMEA version:

If this is true, it is equally as stupid as the original April 19 launch date (Ah, Portal 2, anyone?), since Dirt 3 is set to release on May 24. If they are delaying to get out of shadow of other titles, they aren't in the sun here either.

To hazard a guess they've fallen foul of the 'three strikes' rule at Steam. Steam get annoyed if as a dev shop you keep wanting to fast-track out vital patches, as Steam are meant to QA them normally (i.e. Steam support gets the angry emails if everyone's install is borked). The US is a big market, and people tend not to have that Dunkirk spirit over release quality so much. You can ask Steam to 'fast track' patches once or twice, but not every week. Best guess is that some guy in Steam said, 'Yeah, tired of this - end of May sounds good for us - let us know how you get on'.

1C will probably say something a little easier on the eye like "We've worked with our partners to come up with a mutually exciting date, so please keep calm and carry on - plus what's Dirt 3 again? Oh, I see. Doh!"

I think it's good news, they think that can made significant improvements on that time. I would have been better if they had took this decision from the beginning.

Oh man, bummer. Oh well, you guys will have that much more time to get this game to proper order for us. Maybe we'll even get the full sli/xfire support i've been hoping for. Our release may be a lot different than the test release. Guess I can wait for that. Still, they just tagged on whole month. I think we all would have expected just 2 weeks, right?

Not a big or stable enough title to justify it. Statistically a tiny blip on the content servers. Would have been nice though.

PS Extra reminder for anyone purchasing from places like JustFlight to just get the key and activate/download it via Steam - you'll save hours (4GB download)

I live in NY and bought mine from Justflight 1 1/2 weeks ago. No problem installing. Its just as if I bought it from Steam. It updated in steam and works well on my system even in its current buggy state. Still I would recommend waiting for a while, so it doesnt leave a bad taste in your mouth. Just throwing that out their for any impatient people like me.

I'd bet you $5 from your wallet that it'll be the same, but they just don't know yet. A US DVD release is unlikely to activate before Steam release in their store - that just how it works.

Personally, and using linear regression of the previous dates, I've calculated the true US date will be October 3rd 2011 smile

Wish I did that on the 31st when I bought mine.. Downloading through the JustFlight installer/downloader thingy was torture!

Just bite the bullet and get it now, if it's on your wishlist. Nothing like playing for a few hours every time a patch comes out to get a sense of how the sim is "growing up" ;-) Waiting until may?! Bah! Bring on the bugs and 12FPS!!

yeah don't buy it if you know you'll get frustrated or it will leave you disillusioned. But if you're one of those that's willing to accept that this is still basically a beta for the NA release and don't mind the bugs, then get it.
I'm in the latter camp and love flying/fighting in my 109 - warts and all. I've gotten my entertainment's worth of money.

get in touch with steam support and they should refund you the pre-purchase for the NA release. They did for me without any problems.
Told them that due to recent developments in the game I'm no longer interested in purchasing. wink

Well, I've waited several years for this - another month or two won't kill me.

Heck, I'm wrestling with finding time for Black Shark, IL-2: 1946, and Rise of Flight as it is.
