Codemasters Online Gaming is hoping to release Sensible World Of Soccer this month.
"We are currently targeting a release at the end of November," COG's Jim Brown told Eurogamer in an interview published today.
"Of course this is all subject to passing the usual internal and Microsoft submissions."
Brown went on to talk about the reasons for the delay, which are not, he says, anything to do with licensing issues surrounding player and team names.
Brown also comments on the status of a potential PC port, and talks about the issues facing COG in making sure SWOS on XBLA lives up to its billing.
