Neverwinter Nights 2 will ship on 20th October rather than in September, Atari said today.

"Given the sheer size and scope of Neverwinter Nights 2 and its 50 to 60-hour single player campaign, it was decided to move the global release date of Neverwinter Nights 2 out a month to late October," Atari said in a statement.

Neverwinter Nights 2 is being developed by Obsidian Entertainment. Like the original game, it includes a detailed editor for creating original campaigns in addition to a large single-player quest.

Apparently the extra month will be "invaluable" for "fine tuning and polishing of both the single and multiplayer experiences to ultimately deliver a game that exceeds the tremendous expectations of the Neverwinter Nights fanbase."
