‘Awesomenauts’ Will Release On PSN As Planned, XBLA Release Uncertain

PlayStation have confirmed that Awesomenauts will be released on PSN tomorrow as was planned despite the earlier uncertainty caused by the publisher’s unfortunate news.

In the words of Professor Farnsworth, “good news everyone”! Your faces may have sagged earlier when we reported on the uncertainty of Awesomenauts release tomorrow due to its publisher, dtp Entertainment, filing for insolvency. However, some of that sad tale has been elevated as PlayStation tweeted that the game will still be released on PSN as was originally planned.

That means it will still be free to PS Plus subscribers too. Of course, those who own just an Xbox 360 have no reason to breathe a sigh of relief yet as no news of the game’s planned XBLA release on May 2nd has arrived. Hence, whether it will also be released for the Xbox then or sometime further down the line, is still something no one can confirm or deny – we’ll just have to wait and see.

UPDATE: Awesomenauts will release on XBLA on May 2nd as planned. It seems that all of the commotion has been sorted out. No need to worry yourselves. Carry on!

More information on Awesomenauts can be found over on the game’s official website.
