EU PS3 Trine 2 Delay A Result Of SCEE QA

Still in their hands.

It’s now 2012 and there’s still no sign of Trine 2 on the PlayStation Store in Europe.

The game launched on all platforms back in December except for PS3 in Europe, bizarrely. Developers Frozenbyte have since issued an apology, but didn’t explain the cause of the delay.

However, it has now emerged that the postponement came about because the game failed Sony Computer Entertainment Europe’s rigorous QA process.

Frozenbyte’s vice president Joel Kinnunen has expressed his disappointment at the failure of a simultaneous launch on PS3 in Europe and America because, in his opinion, both games were identical:

Trine 2 is in SCEE’s QA now. There was probably a holiday pause but things should be back to normal now so hopefully we’ll hear more soon.

We are anxiously awaiting the European release ourselves!

We had both SCEA and SCEE versions ready at the same time and they are basically 100 per cent the same (SCEA version already has all European languages, for example), so we are very disappointed we couldn’t have a simultaneous launch. But it’s out of our hands.

This means that there’s still no word on a European release date and Kinnunen has said that all they can do is hope that “the release is as soon as possible.”

    If only SCEE could actually tell us why it failed QA. Yeah, that’s be helpful.

      I’m not sure my wife would agree considering how much cursing she did while playing it. :D. It does look lovely though and she achieved the platinum back on the 28th.

    I honestly don’t understand why SCEE failed the game when Frozenbyte have said its almost exactly the same. Now I understand why Devs say its so hard to get games onto PSN – nothing makes sense.

    If this continues it’ll anger customers even more and I’m sure developers will want to avoid SCEE in protest?
