Alone in the Dark pushed back to June

Atari wants game looking its best.

Atari has told Eurogamer that it is pushing the release of Alone in the Dark back from May to June.

The Xbox 360, PC, Wii and PS2 versions will now be available on 20th June in Europe and 24th June in the US. A PS3 offering is still "to follow".

The reason for the delay is because Atari and Eden want to offer the best possible game they can. The extra month will allow for additional polish and any bugs to be ironed out.

Atari was keen to get across that it has had positive responses from all who have seen the title, which is very much a flagship game for the publisher.

Former Sony bosstype Phil Harrison joined Atari at the beginning of March, bigging up "the best opportunity that exists in the industry today to redefine, refocus and re-energise an incredible brand, an incredible group of people towards that networked future".

We saw Alone in the Dark at the end of February and heavily recommended it be on your radar as one to keep an eye on.
