Bethesda has told Eurogamer that yes, Brink has been delayed until autumn 2010.
The news comes weeks after Splash Damage boss Paul Wedgwood stood confidently by a spring 2010 release for his game.
An explanation was absent. Whether the ambitious shooter needs more time, or whether Bethesda wants out of a busy Q1 2010 remains speculation.
Bethesda is throwing the kitchen sink at Brink to ensure the single-cum-multiplayer shooter performs on the biggest scale next year.
So far the results are promising. Our Brink gamepage below bursts with coverage, videos and screenshots.
