Brinksmanship: FPS gets earlier release date

Brink, an upcoming FPS under development by Splash Damage, is set to be released one week earlier than previously scheduled, the game’s publisher announced today.

The title is now scheduled for a May 10 release in North America for PC, PlayStation 3 and XBox 360.

“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, marketing vice president for Bethesda Softworks, the game’s publisher.
“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.”
