Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, the Sanzaru Games-developed fourth entry in the Sly Cooper series, has been hit with a delay to February 2013, according to Sony.

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, the Sanzaru Games-developed fourth entry in the Sly Cooper series, has been hit with a delay to February 2013, according to Sony.

The game had previously been scheduled for release this year; in fact, Sony's official listing for it still shows a release date of 2012.

Sony showed the trailer below during the livestream that followed today's Gamescom 2012 press conference. The end of the trailer reveals a date of "early 2013" for Thieves in Time. Sony announced at its press briefing that Thieves in Time would be one of the first games under the company's new Cross Buy program, in which anybody who buys a PS3/Vita cross-platform game on PS3 also gets a copy on Vita for free.

That leads us to believe that the delay into 2013 also applies to the Vita version of Thieves in Time, which was also previously scheduled for a 2012 release. We've reached out to Sony for comment, and will update this post with any information we receive.

For now, you can peruse our previous coverage of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, and the Gamescom screenshots below.

Update: A Sony representative told Polygon that "Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time will be releasing in February 2013 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita," because Sony wants to "ensure gamers continue to have a variety of content to enjoy after the holidays and into the New Year." We've updated the story to reflect Sony's statement.
