Back to the Batphone with Microsoft, then.

Update 2: Microsoft has again reiterated the statement given to us, further adding the page that mentions the date on the Xbox website “was inaccurately updated and the team are working on rectifying this.”

Original Story: Microsoft has confirmed to VG247 the June 11 release date apparently given by the firm for Crackdown 2 is “incorrect”.

The company did say in its NPD response last week it would release in June 2010. It soon retracted the date, however, saying it was listed “incorrectly”.
