In addition to the news on Call of Duty: Black Ops
there's some more war orientated (not so great) information regarding Ubisoft's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
Originally a 'holiday period' release, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot told a Ubisoft Investors Briefing:
Due to a very competitive environment, we decided to move the game out of the Christmas quarter, and into the March quarter. It will also provide additional time to our development teams to realize their vision.
Presumably this relates to the end of Ubisoft's fiscal year, and we could probably read from this that the title will go on general sale at the back end of March. This seems to be confirmed by Kimi Matsuzaki, Senior Community Developer, for Ubisoft
"Yes, [Ghost Recon] Future Soldier has been delayed to early 2011. It’s good, we have more polish time." - (http://twitter.com/UbiKimi/status/14243043079
should still make a showing at the next E3
which will afford gamers the opportunity to get a first look at the title, but that's the only of light for avid Ghost Recon
fans at the moment.
It would seem that Ubisoft
are potentially worried about the impact of Halo: Reach
and Call of Duty: Black Ops
(two of the largest holiday titles due this year) on sales of Ghost Recon
after a fairly long period of time out of the public's eye and mind.
