Phantasy Star Online was a huge game back in the days of the Sega Dreamcast (and to a lesser extent, the Nintendo Gamecube). Although the series has seen several iterations and sequels since its initial release, there has been no proper sequel. The Phantasy Star games that have come out since then have mostly been of debatable quality.
All of that changed last July, when Sega release Phantasy Star Online 2 in Japan to much fanfare.
Unfortunately, gamers in the western side of the hemisphere who can't afford to import the game are going to have to wait longer for the game to arrive.
According to Polygon.com, the game (which had a very loose release date slated for early 2013) has been pushed back to an unspecified time frame. Sega didn't have anything specific to add at this time, but said that they would provide info as soon as it was available.
While it's definitely sad news for the fans looking forward to it, to paraphrase Shigeru Miyamoto, "A delayed game is good later, a bad game is bad forever."
Sci-Fi MMO fans will just have to wait a little longer to get their mitts on the game.
