DreamCatcher and JoWooD announced today that the PlayStation 3 version of ArcanIA- Gothic 4 has been pushed back to the first half of 2011 to ensure that the version will match the quality of the PC and Xbox 360 versions (which are scheduled for release on October 12th.

This isn't the first time the game has been delayed and given that it's the first time the series has appeared on the console it's not too unexpected to see the PS3 version delayed as it's architecture is so vastly different than the PC and Xbox 360.  Tina liked what she saw at E3 this year and I've seen the game enough to know that RPG fans are in for a treat if all the promise of the game is delivered.
