Dungeon Defenders Delayed

Trendy Entertainment tweets about another delay to the PC edition of Dungeon Defenders, saying: "Release date will be late Q1, around March / April." (April will actually be early Q2.) They add: "PC version will release shortly after console versions. Sorry for the confusion." The game was previously expected this month, and no reason for the setback for the action/RPG and Tower Defense hybrid is offered. Thanks Big Download.

Actually, a reason *was* given blue. Back in November when they first delayed it, one of them let it slip that they had to delay it because Microsoft threatened to deny them the XBLA release if the PC version came out before the X360 version. So they had to delay it to please Microsoft.

That thread was quickly taken down and replaced with a standard, boilerplate response.

No doubt the 360 version is taking longer (It's what they've said before) and it is pushing the PC version back.
Good ole MS.

A fair point but I doubt it, Microsoft requires any monetary incentive deals for XBLA to have a period of exclusivity. Since it's being released for both simultaneously that rules that out. I think the PC version just needs more love because you're dealing with a very diverse platform and they are a small studio so fair enough.

I have the Android version, and it is actually a neat game. My problem with it is that I found the touch based controls to be frustrating, so I was planning to buy either the Xbox or PC version.

I suspect the reason for the delay is more driven by Trendy trying to reach a deal with MS & Sony rather than a technical issue. MS seems to announce upcoming Live titles 4-6 weeks in advance, so I knew the chances of this coming out before March were slim to none. I would not be surprised if this get push back further than April...

Also, I thought MS had a policy of not letting Live titles be cross published with Sony by Indy developers. Anyone know anything about that?
