An image is doing the rounds showing a Dark Souls 2 PC Collector’s Edition with a release date of 25 April. Sites are reporting it in conjunction with information that sounds as though it’s from an official press release (details about 60fps and resolutions “four times higher” than that of consoles.)
We haven’t been sent, or seen, such a press release, and when asked whether 25 April is actually the PC release date Namco Bandai America’s twitter account responded with the following:
@JohnAlva114 We haven't announced a PC release date yet – We'll have more info to share on that front soon though!

Note that this isn’t a denial of the release date, just a statement that Namco hasn’t officially announced it yet. That doesn’t rule out a leak, or a press release being accidentally issued and then retracted. All the company will say is that more info is coming “soon,” a line they’ve been sticking to for the past few weeks.
If the Dark Souls 2 PC release date is indeed 25 April, that would place it around six weeks after the console release of 11 March.
