News EN UK & US Two Worlds II Dates Clarified + TopWare Now Bringing Two Worlds II to UK

With the recent news of Southpeak "selling" Publishing Rights To Two Worlds II back to TopWare,which we now know were not sold but rather given back to TopWare, the Co-Developer/Publisher.
TopWare has stepped in to end all speculation on whether UK will see Two Worlds II in stores by releasing a Press Release earlier today, clearing up alot of questions.

Southpeak Interactive will still be going to Publish Two Worlds II in the United States but will not be Publishing in UK, TopWare Interactive will now be Publishing Two Worlds II in the United Kingdom.The Game is to be set loose on British and American Soil on January 25th, a few weeks later than the loosely set original date of Early January!

The newly set date allows both Company's to give and get the attention that Two Worlds II deserves in both countries:
Quote:
"TopWare Interactive’s, managing director, James Seaman, had this to say: "Both TopWare and South Peak want our game to get the attention it deserves. South Peak wants to give the North American market 100% of their attention, and we're happy we were able to take some of the weight off their shoulders. Two Worlds II really is a labor of love, and after seeing how far the game has come, the fans are going to be blown away in January!"
Also revealed that Two Worlds II Broke the 1 Million Sales Mark within 3 Weeks of the Game Releasing in Continental Europe, TopWare say that the momentum doesn't show any signs of slowing down any time soon!
We at I2W would like to Congratulate TopWare/ZuxxeZ and Reality Pump on breaking the 1 Million Unit Mark!

See the Full Press Release Below!
Quote:
TopWare Interactive taking TWO WORLDS II™ to the UK

Launch Date slated for January, 25th 2011 for the UK and North America

Las Vegas, Nevada – December 8th, 2010

Happy Holidays from TopWare Interactive! We're proud to announce that Two Worlds II, the major turnaround sequel of the year, has recently broken the one million unit sales mark in Europe after just three weeks on the store shelves. And, the momentum doesn't appear to be slowing. More than sixty magazines have awarded or reviewed the game as being exceptional, and player feedback has been tremendous as well.

As many know, the North American, Irish and UK release of the next installment in the Two Worlds franchise has been pushed back to January 25th, 2011. Contrary to an earlier December press release in Europe by TopWare's publishing partner: South Peak Games, has relinquished distribution rights in Ireland and the UK to TopWare in order to focus on their North American marketing campaign. The rights were not purchased back by TopWare, as was previously reported.

TopWare Interactive’s, managing director, James Seaman, had this to say: "Both TopWare and South Peak want our game to get the attention it deserves. South Peak wants to give the North American market 100% of their attention, and we're happy we were able to take some of the weight off their shoulders. Two Worlds II really is a labor of love, and after seeing how far the game has come, the fans are going to be blown away in January!"

TopWare also plans to open a UK office within the next six months that will support the press and all of the retail community in a positive and comprehensive fashion.

I wonder if the push back to the 26th could also have something to do with the Gold patch. They may be looking to manufacture ready patched games for UK/US etc. and if the patch doesn't come out before people take their Christmas break then the units wouldn't be made in time.

Afaik, the Gold Patch will be included in the US & UK Versions.
Aslong as the patch is done, I would think that RP would put it into the US & UK Gold Version, straight away despite it not being released.
Still I would expect the Patch to be released before Xmas.

I was hoping for January 4th, but I guess this will have to do. I have it pre-ordered and paid off for the second time, so I will just wait it out. It just sucks that it is releasing on the same day as Dead Space 2. I'll probably end up playing Dead Space 2 first.

Re: UK & US Two Worlds II Dates Clarified + TopWare Now Bringing Two Worlds II to UK

I have to wonder how many of those 1 million are sales that Southpeak should have gotten, but didn't because they decided to mess around with the release dates and aggravated their customer base.

Probably a good 10 to 20% I'd guess judging by the number of people in the poll at Zuxxez,
http://board.zuxxez.com/showthread.php?t=34954

If those figures were to reflect totals across the world then then it would be in excess of 50%, but not every buyer will post on forums.

Re: UK & US Two Worlds II Dates Clarified + TopWare Now Bringing Two Worlds II to UK

Good to see Southpeak falling flat on their arse to be honest, they've jerked around enough companies as it is.

I just hope my interest in TW2 comes back in time for the release, I've unfortunately lost all interest for it. :/
I also hope the US and UK Sales don't suffer as a consequence of Southpeak's unnecessary delay, I don't like the idea of Reality Pump suffering on account of an abysmal third party such as Southpeak, from what I've heard Two Worlds II is a fantastic game so here's hoping all goes well for it in January.

XD

I got sick and tired of hearing about the game knowing it was delayed until next year and I have an annoying habit of hyping up a game in my mind the longer I have to wait for it so long as I keep gaining information on it. So I disappeared for a bit but checked back after a friend told me South Peak had fallen as the UK publisher.

Might actually start lurking around here again now that the game has a confirmed UK release.

Re: UK & US Two Worlds II Dates Clarified + TopWare Now Bringing Two Worlds II to UK

I was obsessed before so I stopped obsessing and I have beaten fable 3 twice and just finished the questlines for saints row 2 that my sister's bf borrowed from a friend. So I am still excited for two worlds 2 but I'm not like I was before where I was living and breathing anything new I learned about it.
