Halloween release for Hellgate: London

EA has tagged Hellgate: London with an official release date of October 31 in North America and November 2 for Europe.

Hellgate: London is the long awaited title from ex-Blizzard man Bill Roper's new outfit, Flagship studios. It's being billed as the next leap as far as action-RPGs go, don't you know?

"We wanted to hit the sweet-spot for release in terms of the development schedule and delivering the highest-quality game to our players," said Roper. "Halloween was the perfect fit as it ensures that Hellgate: London will have an appropriate amount of beta testing, while also being an incredibly fun time to unleash the game."

You could also argue that it's the perfect time for launch because it scoops the release of Crysis by just over a week. That said, both games are coming from the publishing stable of EA though.
