News - SMT IV Delayed Again

A couple of days ago an eagle eyed fan had noticed the date on the mobile site for SMT IV had changed to November.
This caused a lot of confusion as ATLUS hadn't mentioned any delay, even the PR manager wasn't aware of any delay and promised to look into it.

Today he tweeted this in regards to the delay.
" SMTIV EU - An Update
After some unscheduled changes to the SMTIV mobile website raised some eyebrows, a lot of you asked for more details, so I’ll be upfront. We encountered a few last-minute issues specific to the EU version, and we have to fix them. Given the current timelines for production, it looks like SMTIV won’t be out in EU until late October.
No one likes delays. Our fans in Europe have been waiting for SMTIV for a *very* long time, and it pains us to have to move the release date back even further. I have talked to a few of you on Twitter, I’ve seen the angry posts on Reddit, NeoGAF, Facebook, etc., and wanted to be as direct as I could. We truly feel awful having to say “wait a little longer” for a game you've been so zealously patient for, but there is no other recourse. We’re doing everything we can to get the game out in Europe as fast as we can, so please bear with us."
So the game is now expected to release October.
Thanks to John Hardin @JohnLHardin for getting back to everyone on this.
No one likes delays but if it avoids an incident like Overclocked having game crashing bugs I for one are more than happy to wait an extra month
