Dark Void Lifs Off On January 12
Capcom didn't want to mess with the big boys scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2009, so they decided to delay the promising Dark Void until next year. But as it turns out, they didn't push it very far...
According to GameSpot, Capcom has announced that this vertical-oriented action title will launch on January 12 in North America and three days later in Europe. The publisher must like that time of year; both Lost Planet: Extreme Condition and Resident Evil 4 have launched in mid-January in the past. Their newest project has an optimistic sales goal of 2 million copies sold in its first year of availability, but they should hit that number if we get a top-quality product. The only issue might be that Dark Void still has to battle Darksiders, Bayonetta, MAG and Army of Two: The 40th Day, all of which are slated to hit in January (The 40th Day also has a January 12 date). Dark Void is the very first project for developer Airtight Games, but we're hoping this jetpack-infused frenzy of an action title will be a hit rookie release. Good luck, guys!
We also suggest saving some money for the first quarter of next year. A whole lot of potentially great games got pushed out of 2009 to make way for the blockbusters, so don't go splurging like mad between October and December. Save a bit in the hopper, fellas.
