Mass Effect - Small Delay for PC Version

BioWare's Chris Priestly has posted about a small delay to Mass Effect for the PC:

 Hi everyone,

I have just confirmed with the development team that we are making a small change to the release date of Mass Effect for the PC. We had previously announced May 6, 2008 for North America. The new release date for North America is May 28, 2008 and June 6, 2008 in Europe.

The team here at BioWare, working closely with the good folks at Demiurge Studios, has decided that a few more weeks in the studio will ensure we deliver the quality that our fans deserve. The additional time will allow us to incorporate more play-testing feedback, add extra polish and tune the additional features so that Mass Effect is a natural and outstanding PC gaming experience.

BioWare and EA are dedicated to excellence. We’re confident that the extra time will be reflected in the final PC experience that we deliver to our fans.

We appreciate your understanding and look forward to delivering a great game!

Thanks all.

Meanwhile, Demiurge has posted a press release on their involvement but there is nothing new that I can see.  Here's a quick snip:

Demiurge Studios is directly involved with the enhancements and additions to Mass Effect in creating a PC-specific user experience. With the development opportunities of the PC, the teams placed focus on higher environmental and character resolutions, smooth game flow and a gameplay interface that takes advantage of the platform. Many new additions are being implemented, such as individual squad member control, a reworked inventory system, fully customized key mapping and hot keys, and an entirely new decryption minigame.
