    I heard about the delay too, but apparently it’s just a 5 hour delay. Nothing serious.

    Regards

    Credible source with link, please?

    Otherwise if this is a wind-up post, then the mods need to lock or delete it.

    In any event I've pre-ordered my copy from Steam who I assume will honour the original price.

    I read about it on the Alpha/Beta forum. Some people have received emails about it. Also read that it is simply a 5 hour delay (releasing at 5am instead of midnight) & that the emails were sent out in error.
    There is also a mention of the price but I don’t know exactly what. I too have preordered (with MS) so they can’t change it.

    Regards
    Steve

    Here you go, cheers and here's to the future!

    It seems the delay is just a few hours from region to region, to save the servers from crashing.
    The price increase seems to be people misinterpreting the exchange rates in their region.
