FEAR 3 is Afraid Of Being Released Just Yet

If you were planning on being either a Pointy Man or a ton of Fettel this time next month, make a sad face now. The third full game in the now long-running series about man-shooting and women-fearing has backed down from its planned release on May 27, for reasons we may never know. Although the line (as given to OXM) is so "more time can be spent on optimisation in order to provide the best experience possible."

Various pundits have speculated it may also be related to a fear (ahahahah) of Rockstar's latest console-only opus L.A. Noire landing just a week before and potentially sewing up the charts as Red Dead Redemption did around this time last year. If true: cowards! Sensible cowards! FEAR 3's original date was also just 10 days after the Witcher 2, which every PC gamer in their right mind should spend most of next month playing.
