Shawn is reporting that a local GameCrazy employee in New Jersey has informed him that Dead or Alive 4 for the Xbox 360 has been delayed. Both EBgames.com and GameStop are now listing Dead or Alive 4 as a December 2005 release. This would mean that the title, originally intended as a launch-day release, will be delayed by over a week. If the story proves true, Dead or Alive 4 is yet another launch casualty on the Xbox 360, following Take-Two’s announcement that Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion would be pushed back until 2006. We’ll have more information, including any official announcement from Tecmo, as it becomes available.
