Tweaks and polish will be needed for Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, which could cause the game to miss its 2014 release date.  This comes from the game's official Twitter account, and also states "Your patience is appreciated and will ultimately be rewarded with everything you hoped for and nothing like what you expected."  

Players have been patiently waiting for the Big Alpha of the highly anticipated game, Evolve.  Well get ready Halloween weekend, for that is when the Big Alpha is coming.  If you are an Xbox One player, you will have the alpha for a full day before Playstation 4 and PC users.  Xbox One users can sign up for priority access to the beta starting today.  As a special treat, a guaranteed spot in the alpha will be available for anyone who has pre-ordered the game through these participating retailers: GameStop, Amazon, Best Buy, Target and Walmart.  It's not too late to pre-order Evolve and have a spot in the alpha, which also grants you the fourth monster for free, when it is available for download.  The alpha will begin on October 30th for Xbox One players, October 31st for Playstation 4 and PC, and will end for all platforms on November 2nd.
