That’s right, you heard it here first: The Behemoth has delayed BattleBlock Theatre. Obviously this is not the best of circumstances, but there is a silver lining to this storm cloud, details after the jump.

As Kelley Revak (Mayor of BehemothTown) posted late last night, there is some bad news. What is it? Well, she said it best herself.

I have a confession to make.  Long story short, BattleBlock Theater is becoming so much more than we ever expected.  It feels like no other game out there – there’s a little more r&d than we thought and lots of new ground to break.  This means we will not be releasing in 2010, but the good news is now that we’ve got Castle Crashers out on PSN worldwide, you can expect LOTS more updates on where we are headed with BBT.

A ton of work has gone into this game which feels like no other game!  We’re currently forcing someone to start getting some videos/pictures prepped so we can pass the time quickly together.

Now, this isn’t entirely bad news. Sure, we can’t play the game until next year but with more staff members working on this title instead of being split apart by Castle Crashers on the PS3 it will equal more spit-n-shine for the game. And it isn’t like we have a short supply of XBLA games to tide us over until then.

In other news Behemoth is now selling cellphone danglers, shaped like the animals from Castle Crashers in their online shop, huzzah!
