The game was delayed for the sake of extra refinement and polish, but now it seems to have a finalized launch date.
According to Rely On Horror , Silent Hill: Downpour will release in North America on March 6.
Most agreed the developers needed more time with this new entry; as we noted when we first heard about a possible delay , much of the feedback had been negative, which may have inspired developer Vatra to push harder. The only problem now is that it has to compete with Mass Effect 3 , which launches on the same say. Of course, the two titles are completely different but hey, gamers have priorities and they usually don't have limitless bank accounts.
That being said, the survival/horror fans deserve a top-quality title this generation. That's not a knock on Resident Evil ; that's merely recognition of the greatness of the Silent Hill franchise. Don't let us down, Vatra!
