    I was expecting October/November. But, I'm not too bothered - the longer it takes, the more time they have to work out any bugs and polish the game. Who knows how much Dark Souls might have benefited from another 6-7 months of development time.

    I REALLY hope that they are trolling. FromSoftware and Miyazaki have been known to fool their fans time and time again:

    1. Pendant rumors (That went on FOREVER)

    2. The Ceaseless Discharge skip (even though it was possible, as Miyazaki confirmed later)

    3. Who the firstborn was (Same as pendant, but answer was more clear and the true firstborn was a lost concept in the development process. See Andre)

    4. Who was the Pygmy, the purpose of humanity, and whether the Link the Fire Ending was evil or not (This all then became speculation, except for the humanity and the Dark Soul/Pygmy connection were true)

    5. Even the dlc was a big deal, remember when they said that Dark Souls was 100% and did not need dlc? That was half a year ago before they announced the PC port.

    This could be another trick that FromSoftware is doing again with the whole "treat it like a AAA title" thing going on. The truth will be revealed later on at E3 2013 (June 6, 12 I think?).
    Believe it or not, from my stand point, I'm actually going slightly insane. Sometimes with these rumors, I feel just a little bit peculiar...http://youtu.be/_sGV_jLtVUk?t=4m37s

    Indeed.....e3 is from the 11-13 june

    With the game no longer in Miyazaki's hands and standing to be a departure, I think the extra time is a good thing. We don't want a rushed product on what could in essence be almost a new ip.

    I'm a bit disappointed, but if it means the game is polished close to perfection, I guess I'm fine with that.

    I'd rather have a finished game with hardly any issues than a game that suffers lag in some places and glitches people can exploit to achieve an unfair advantage.

    I can only echo the sentiments of others on this issue. While I was hoping to play it sooner, I'm sure it will ultimately yield a better end product. And the more I think of it, there's still so much I have yet to do in the first Dark Souls. I've still hardly touched any play styles outside of the semi-tank-ish warrior realm.

    the more i think, the more i begin to actually like that release date because it shows that FROM really is in control of the game development. On Bamco's point of view, a 2013 RD would be best to maximize sales, so hopefully this info will calm down some of the doomsayers out there.

    9 to 10 months? Doesn't sound too bad, gives me more time to do any experimenting that I haven't already done.

    Guess it's for the best though, to be honest I thought a release date this year would be a little too soon for the release of the game.

    As long as we get a long, meaty gameplay video to drool over until march I'll be happy.

    if this giant, 100ft long, professionally printed, perfectly timed Dark Souls 2 reveal banner hoisted 40ft up outside the E3 games conference turns out to be the work of a troll. .

    ....OK.

    I'm trying so hard not to watch anything to do with DkS II, or else it'll take away the excitement. I ruined my experience with DmC because I did that, so I'll shut out any news and game play that I come across. Unless it talks about the release dates.

    Makes the experience all the better. Besides, the longer it takes, the bigger and better it'll be.

    What's not to say that this could be the case. Namco, especially the guys at From Software, have been known to troll their fans and customers in some form or another. The purpose of the Pendant, who was the Firstborn of Gywn, Humanity and The Dark Soul, heck even their other games they trolled us hard before! What's stopping them to troll us with this giant, small text, obscured shot of a poster with a release date that MIGHT be false for the sake of trolling. I don't think putting up a large banner/poster is THAT expensive, so who knows. Wait until E3 comes around or better yet, ends so that the real info can come out from them. You'll see.

    But this is not a game related troll, it's a freaking poster so it's 99% confirmed.

    ONLY chance for us to get the game sooner is that this date is for now decided next gen release and the version for current gen comes sooner, but that's highly unlikely since they already said that there is not going to be next gen Dark Souls 2.

    @chaos
    yeah i know what you mean, but I'm not sure Miyazaki and chums would interfere with something like this, the release date is really relevant to the upcoming E3 and From are famously making the step to an AAA game so to pull the rug from under people with a trick like this would annoy many of those unfamiliar with Froms teasing and baiting.

    crucially. . .From seem to spend their time more effectively, tricking people using their game content rather than something incredibly mundane like a big poster..

    obviously I'm disappointed that we have to wait another 5 months longer than we originally speculated, but on the other hand...

    1. it gives them more time to perfect the game and make sure it is something extraordinary

    2. it fits in SO well with buying my new house that I think the spare will will now definately be housing a 55inch telly and games room.. the "Dark Souls Room"
