Despite a GameStop sweepstakes hinting at a concrete September 7 release date for Splash Damage’s Brink, along with other retailers pinning a September release on the shooter, publisher Bethesda has said that the official word is still ‘fall 2010’ and that all other dates should be treated as “speculative.”
“Often times retailers will assign a release date for a game that falls within the game’s announced launch window,” a Bethesda rep explains. “While we have announced that Brink is due out in Fall 2010, we have yet to announce an official release date for the game. Until we have announced the release date, all other dates can be considered speculative.”
So the September release may well be correct, Bethesda just doesn’t want us to know for sure quite yet.
