505 Games is acting publisher on two upcoming sports titles originally planned for June that may now be moving to fall. The no-holds barred underground fighter Supremacy MMA and the Kinect for Xbox 360 exclusive swimming game Michael Phelps: Push the Limit have seen their release dates shift with Gamestop and changes are beginning to appear with other retailers as well.
Supremacy MMA had been slated for June 7th and now sits on September 27th while Push the Limit has been set on June 21st and now shows October 25th. These are both valid dates and not typical placeholders. Generally Gamestop and other retailers would not make a change such they did with these two titles unless they had specific reason to do so. They may not be finalized dates however as Walmart has changed Supremacy MMA to September 6th instead. Regardless given the lack of marketing for both as of late plus these indications it is clear that something is up and they are being pushed back.
Both games are scheduled to be at E3 though kept behind closed doors to select media only. If their releases are farther off than anticipated that would make some sense as otherwise they’d benefit more by increasing the exposure and having them out for the whole crowd.
Update: It’s now official that Supremacy MMA has been delayed to September 20th.
