Dark Souls 2 will release for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in March next year, Namco Bandai has confirmed.

The publisher announced a March 11 release in North America and March 14 release in Australia and Europe at its Tokyo Game Show event earlier today.

These dates apply only to console editions, with the PC version to release at an unspecified later date. Game director Yui Tanimura explained to Eurogamer that the delay is due to FromSoftware "working on more options on how to make the PC version optimal."

A Dark Souls 2 Collector's Edition will also be made available, which bundles a 12-inch Warrior Knight statue, art-book, map and the official Dark Souls 2 soundtrack.

Meanwhile, a Black Armour Edition will be available upon launch, which boasts a metal case housing the game disc and official soundtrack.

A Dark Souls 2 beta will commence next month on PS3, with free sign-ups available now.

Just to avoid any conclusion jumping or class warfare.

So we'll probably be getting GTA V and Dark Souls 2 right around the same time.

Geez.

I hope they use something like steamworks for the servers otherwise it will be hack fest online again.

Which of course will be made even worse since you have no way of avoiding being invaded without giving up everything online all together.

They should just can the beta or keep it to their QT squad.

Letting anyone opt in is going to accomplish nothing but idiots prodding around for exploits and how to hack it for 5 months and no one is going to report any of it.

It releasing for consoles first does not change this fact. I doubt it will be a significant delay, and honestly after the last port they can take all the time they need.

Rushing something out leads to sloppy work, which is why Dark Souls goes straight down the pipe after Fatboy Slim.

They are still inexperienced with PC. Remember that last port was their first shot at PC.

Knowing this company, if they are delaying it is because they are trying to make sure they do it right or at least their best approximation of right.

Good to know. Means they learned from the hack fest on their last port. Thanks.
