Remember how a few days ago I was shocked to discover that DCU Online was going to be released in less than a month, on the very day of November 2nd no less? Well, now it’s not. Nope, due to *cough* no apparent reason DC Universe Online has been delayed until “early 2011″. Oh coincidence, thy name is Cataclysm.
Yes, if you’ve managed to pick up on the subtle wittery that was plaguing this article’s title and first paragraph then you’ll probably have honed in on the fact that I’m blaming the imminent release of Blizzard’s next WoW expansion for this timely delay. Let’s be fair though, it’s a pretty logical conclusion to come to considering not only do Warcraft expansions have a tendency to dominate the industry and chew up any small fry MMO that happens to get in the way but also SOE announced the news a mere 24 hours after the official release date for Cataclysm was set. Hmmm indeedy.
