DC Universe Online releases January 11th?


We really like DCUO with the time we’ve spent with it in the beta. Its action combat is a breath of fresh air in MMOs and it respects the license greatly. In fact, it’s probably the best licensed MMO yet; even more so than LOTRO. As great as the beta is, everyone is wondering when the final game will be out as it was originally delayed from it’s November release date to Q1 2011. Well, we may now have a date.

Amazon just emailed all DCUO pre-orders stating that the release date has been changed from the end of April to January 11th. This date is so concrete that Amazon Prime is offering release date delivery for the title, which they normally do not do unless it’s a rock solid release date. Back up this very soon release is a post from Smed on his personal blog where he states that a release date for the game will be announced “in the very near future.”
