Midnight Club stalls again

Rockstar 360, PS3, and PSP racer won't brake for announced September release date, blows straight past into October.


Midnight Club: Los Angeles is stuck in the garage for another month. Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar San Diego's anticipated Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 street racer has been pushed back again, this time to early October. Rockstar London's spin-off for the PSP, Midnight Club: LA Remix, has also slipped a month.

Originally set to launch earlier this year, the game was delayed in March and later given a September 9 release date. Take-Two explained that the postponed launch was "to leverage the retail strength leading to the key holiday-selling season, and in order to provide some distance from the release of Grand Theft Auto IV." No reason was given for today's delay.

Midnight Club: Los Angeles features an open world planned to be nearly three times the size of Midnight Club: Dub Edition and full of actual LA landmarks. Keeping faithful to the series, it will also sport customizable licensed cars and tuner parts including rims, tires, and spoilers.

All three editions of Midnight Club are now expected to arrive in North American stores on October 7, with European launches set for October 10.
