Funcom announced today that the release date of Anarchy Online: Shadowlands has been pushed back from August 26th to September 9th. "With Shadowlands, we are literally adding a whole new dimension to our game," explained Funcom CEO, Trond Aas. "The scope of the project is huge, and we have found that we need a couple of more weeks of testing and balancing before launching the expansion." While fans will have to wait another two weeks for the expansion, Trond Aas is certain it will be worth the wait. "I'm convinced everyone will see the sense in our decision. The extra wait will be long forgotten once they start exploring the marvelous world of Shadowlands." Odd how a game that was announced GOLD can magically get delayed, eventhough its only for a few weeks.
