Hotline Miami 2 delayed until "late 2014 or early 2015"

Wrong quarter.

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number has already missed its target of a Q3 launch and developer Dennaton Games has announced that it's now expected in "late 2014 or early 2015." We expect the latter because when has a game ever come out on time?

"Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is still getting some final tweaks and polish, expected to be ready for late 2014 or early 2015," the developer tweeted. "Your patience is appreciated and will ultimately be rewarded with everything you hoped for and nothing like what you expected," it added.

To get an idea at the sort of additions Dennaton has implemented in this sequel, here's Ian Higton showing off the smooth moves of new playable characters: The Fans, a Sons of Batman-esque vigilante group who worships Hotline One's protagonist, Jacket.
