Codemasters has announced release dates for its Xbox 360, PS3 and PC action RPG, Rise of the Argonauts.

The game had been lined-up for a 2008 debut and will still just about manage that in most territories, although UK gamers are out of luck. The game will release across Europe and Australia on December 12, 2008, followed in the US on December 16.

For reasons unknown the game won't make it to UK stores until early in 2009. No specific date has been given. Although a Japanese release is planned, a release date is still to be confirmed.
