WWE All Stars DLC Gets Delayed on Xbox Live

WWE All Stars fans hoping to get their Honky Tonk on with the free Honky Tonk Man DLC that was supposed to be available today, will sadly have to Honky Tonk wait, as THQ has announced that it has encountered some technical problems with said content. Apparently, this issue also affects the pre-order Million Dollar Pack (which has got to be annoying if you pre-ordered the game) and the American Dream Pack.
THQ explained the reason for the delay in a lengthy, wordy statement that we're assuming was bellowed into a microphone from the middle of a wrestling ring, but almost certainly wasn't. For added entertainment value, just pretend that Macho Man Randy Savage is shouting this into your face:
"We have ran into some technical issues with our WWE All Stars downloadable content for Xbox 360 that will unfortunately delay its release past our initially communicated timing of on or before April 19," the statement from THQ begins. "As is the case with the game development process and subsequent launch of downloadable content, there are unexpected technical variables that can often impact a release date, and unfortunately, we have been hit by one. This delay impacts the pre-order Million Dollar Pack (“The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase and his son, Ted DiBiase), Honky Tonk Man free playable character for everyone and the American Dream Pack featuring Dusty Rhodes and his son, Cody Rhodes. We are fully aware of our initial intent to deliver the content by this time frame and sincerely apologise for this delay, as well as the unforeseen miscommunication of our plans."
THQ neglected to issue a new release date for the WWE All Stars DLC (and forgot to add an "oh, yeeeah!"), but reassured that it will be made available as soon as humanly possible: "Our development team is working hard to remedy the situation, and we are hopeful the content will be released as soon as possible for Xbox 360 users. The delay is likely to push the release past this week; however, please continue checking the official website for updates. While we understand this isn’t positive news, we thank everyone for their understanding and patience, and we will do everything we can to remedy the situation."
So, keep checking back via the handy link we've embedded in the statement above, or keep it locked here for any future developments. Hint: the second option is better. Oooh, yeeeah!
