Simply Games withdraws Test Drive error

Internet retailer has pulled Test Drive Unlimited 2 from sale, after mistakenly selling the game almost two weeks early.

MCV was contacted by several retailers last week saying that Simply Games had broken Test Drive Unlimited 2’s street date, which is due for release this Friday (February 11th). The game was advertised as ‘in-stock now’ and ‘despatched same day’ on the firm’s website.

But today the online indie has pulled the game from its virtual shelves.

"The TDU2 thing appears to be an error on our part and we have now rectified it," Simply Games director Neil Muspratt told MCV.

Online retailers often release games a day or two early to make sure titles reach customers on the day of release. But more than a week early is understandably frowned upon by rival sellers and publishers.

Test Drive Unlimited 2 is due for release on February 11th on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
