Risen 2: Dark Waters has apparently been delayed a month according to a report on YouGamers, which now tags Piranha Bytes' pirate-flavoured RPG for May.

The game had been previously dated for April 24th in North America and April 27th in Europe, but Deep Silver and Piranha Bytes have given no reason for the supposed delay, which has yet to be confirmed.

However, a delay for additional visual polish would make a lot of sense, as when we went hands-on with Risen 2 last month, it was looking rather rough around the edges. You can read our hands-on Risen 2: Dark Waters preview here. It'll now be walking the plank on May 22nd in North America and May 25th in Europe, if the report proves to be true.

[Update] The dates have been confirmed on the official Risen 2 Facebook page.

I was really interested in this until i saw some gameplay on a tv show. Risen might have got away with it's crap acting, awful voices and terrible graphics but this one won't and believe me, it's unbelievably bad.

Is was going to drown in the shadow of Witcher 2. That it gives them more time to tinker is just a plus.

Too bad for the delay. Really hoping it's gonna be good. I can put up with bad acting, and graphics, as long as the controls are half-decent, and the story is good.

OT: Anyone else think that the face on that spider creature is just the most awesome thing you've ever seen?

Didn't like first one at all, this one at least had pirates in it! And I do love pirates. Might get it in the far away future for $5, but most likely I will have my hands full with other games...
