[Update: Warner Bros. has confirmed us that the game will ship in "Spring 2011." This jives with GameStop's current April release, but we'll have to wait for official date and commitment from Warner for confirmation.]
Destructoid has been able to confirm today that Day 1 Studios upcoming first-person shooter, FEAR 3, won't see release until 2011. The game was originally scheduled for late October 2010, just in time for Halloween.
No reason for the delay was given by the Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment representative who confirmed the delay, and no official date other than the vague 2011 was mentioned. Retailers (who originally tipped us off to the delay) are currently listing it for an April 2011 release.
Warner Bros. recently released a trailer for the game, which features the game's two protagonists -- Point Man and Paxton Fettel -- killing things in a room. Because that's what brothers do, right? Check out our preview for more on FEAR 3 and its divergent co-op gameplay.
