Anyone looking forward to the release of Sacred 2 on Xbox 360 or PS3 is going to have to wait a little longer than expected.

Koch Media has said that the release of the game for the two next-gen consoles has slipped to Q1 2009, but gave no reason for the delay.

The PC offering is still set to arrive on the original 7th November release date.

The news was announced alongside the unveiling of the Sacred 2 Collector's Edition, which treats fans to an in-game Carrier Imp to carry around your equipment and treasure. Very nice too.

You can get a sneak peek at what to expect from the PC version in the Sacred 2 demo, which gives you around five hours of gameplay to get your teeth into.

We'll get you any news on release dates for PS3 and Xbox 360 versions as soon as we hear anything.
