Rage faces mild US/EU delay

Bethesda and id Software’s Rage has been delayed. Don’t be alarmed though, it’s a slip of the shortest kind.

Scratch those previously announced September 13 (US) and 15 (EU) dates and pencil in the new ones: October 4 for North America, October 7 for Europe.

No reasons for the pushed back dates have been given, but chances are a delay this small after 7 years of development has little to do with the game’s quality. Bethesda may simply with to avoid launching the title a week before Microsoft’s big 2011 exclusive for the Xbox 360, Gears of War 3, hits the shelves.
