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!

[Thanks, Mike]

I'm really hoping there isn't DLC achievements. I got rid of this garbo when I got my 1000.

Ah you printed it! Excellent.
The only bit of good news is the million dollar edition doesn't seem to be more expensive in many shops. Still stupidly annoying though!

@5 i cant imagine Cody will be dressed as Golddust as they are 2 different people. Both Dustys children but 2 seperate wrestlers. Suprised Golddust isnt on this, although he does just job to people on Superstars now, well when he isnt injured

@8 well in the Uk there were two editions. One was normal and the other said on the box Million Dollar Edition and had the code in the box. It's not just a preorder thing. At some shops the million dollar edition was more expensive but obviously that's a rip off as you can't play te dlc yet.

I agree though this game is great!

It's hardly surprising. THQ haven't exactly been the most reliable of Developers when it comes to DLC. SvR 2011 has been a huge pain the arse with the release dates as well.

THQ can always make it up to Xbox360 users by giving them an extra, Free Downloadable Pack.

this game was fun in small doses, but really really annoyingly complicated in terms of the reversal, unless u hav almost super human timing, most matches became real frustrating. but i cant say 2 much, it was an "arcade" style game, much different from the simulations (smackdown vs raw). played it, was done then traded it. hopefully wwe 12 will be back to wat the games are & not wat all stars was.
