Rocksmith delayed in Europe

Rocksmith won’t be hitting European territories until next year, publishing giant Ubisoft has announced.

Writing in a post on Facebook, the company said that the music sim’s PAL launch has been postponed due to “music licensing and other external factors.” The game is still on track for its U.S. launch next week, however.

It’s worth noting that importers won’t in for much luck either, as the PS3 version, while region-free, won’t be PAL-compatible, as is the case for any downloadable content. The Xbox 360 version is region-locked too.

Stay tuned.
