The hotly anticipated (by me) Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 for XBL Arcade and PSN will no longer be hitting its rumored street date of June 29, 2009. Apparently that actually was just a rumor and had no basis in reality at all. Using Twitter to give fans the horrible news in 140 characters or less, Capcom tweets, “MvC2 is not actually coming out on June 29, sorry guys. Not sure where that rumor came from, but it’s going to be closer to the end of July.”
Apparently this was all due to Marvel’s Q4 press release (*.pdf) that has the game listed for a June 29th, 2009 release date. Maybe Marvel should get onto fixing that hiccup. But the really interesting thing about the release is the listing of a Spider-Man broadway musical lined up for next year titled Spider-Man, Turn off the Dark which has music written by Bono! What the hell?
