News: Duke Nukem could take a lesson from Bethesda.
Duke Nukem could take a lesson from Bethesda. Bethesda Softworks today announced that its acclaimed first-person shooter, Brink, will be available one week earlier than originally scheduled. Brink will now first be available for purchase in North America on May 10th instead of May 17, and in Europe on May 13 instead of May 20.
"Production wrapped on Brink earlier than we planned and we didn't see any reason to keep gamers from getting their hands on this highly anticipated game as soon as it was ready," said Pete Hines, VP of PR and Marketing for Bethesda Softworks. "It's apparent from the tremendous reaction so far that people are eager to jump online and play, and if we can make that happen earlier - we're going to."
