You know what they say about good things and those who wait. Well, you can now put your patience to good use with Rage. id Software has postponed the hotly anticipated post-apocalyptic shooter until October 4, three weeks later than the originally scheduled September 13 release date.
I'm not seeing an announcement anywhere, but as Joystiq reports, the official site has quietly started quoting the new launch day. The pre-order link at the top right now simply says "In stores October 4th, 2011" and "pre-order now."
I guess three weeks isn't the end of the world. Heck, Duke Forever saw a similar setback when its release date was pushed back from early May to mid-June (other delays notwithstanding). Besides, it's not like this year isn't packed to the brim with hot game releases. I know I won't be left wanting for something to pass the time.
