One game which a lot of you have been looking forward to is Ubisoft’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, since the game was first announced back in 2009 it has suffered lost of delays, now we are hearing that it will not arrive until Q1 2012.
Almost exactly a year ago we heard that the game had been delayed until 2011, this was disappointing for many, however gameplay videos and screenshots showed up soon after which suggested that developers were making good progress, therefore this recently announced delay is even more frustrating than the last.
According to a recent article posted on EuroGamer the release date delay is said to be due to a crowded holiday season release schedule, games like Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3 will probably steal the headlines, therefore from a business point of view it is a good decision. The thing that annoys us is the fact that a similar excuse was used last year.
We can now confirm that the game will arrive (hopefully) between January and March 2012, hopefully we will get to see the game in action next month at E3 2011, but we won’t hold our breath.
On a personal note I find this news very frustrating, I have been looking forward to this game for a long time, Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter (GRAW) and GRAW2 were two of my favorite games back in the day, therefore I have high expectations for the next game.
Are you fed up with all the delays?
