EA Announces October Release Date For Brutal Legend

Electronic Arts has confirmed Double Fine’s Brütal Legend will launch on Xbox 360 and PS3 on October 13th in North America, and on October 16th in Europe.
Electronic Arts has confirmed Double Fine’s Brutal Legend will launch on Xbox 360 and PS3 on October 13th in North America, and on October 16th in Europe. The third-person action game stars actor Jack Black as a roadie named Eddie Riggs, where he must battle the forces of evil in a fantasy world derived from heavy metal album cover illustrations. "Wooo! Having an official release date is awesome!" enthuses Double Fine president Tim Schafer. "And how cool is it that EA threw down the dough to have the name of an entire month changed to Rocktober?" The latest game from the Psychonauts developer was famously dropped by Activision following its merger with Vivendi Games. After some months in publishing limbo, the game was picked up for release by EA Partners. The controversy did not end there. Although Activision apparently followed through to legal action, it claimed it still owned the rights to Brutal Legend, declaring it would seek compensation from EA -- a move EA likened to "a husband abandoning his family and then suing after his wife meets a better-looking guy."
