We're excited for Dungeon Siege III – it got me to start a new game in Champions of Norrath – but we'll have to wait a bit longer.
Initially set for May 31, Square-Enix has just revealed that Obsidian's latest won't be ready in North America until June 21. European gamers will get it a few days earlier on June 17. After drinking in the latest details , we admit to being excited for this new hack 'n slash RPG, especially because it seems to represent a style of gameplay we thought had died last generation. Furthermore, after Obsidian's last game – the very broken Alpha Protocol – we're wondering if this team has what it takes to make a quality next-gen title. We're not about to pass judgment before the game arrives, though; past failures don't mean future games will automatically flop. And besides, all they really have to do is get the controls right, and we're good to go.
It seems a lot more titles are getting pushed into June, though, which is suddenly looking like a very full month…
