Ubisoft UK have been on to us with revised GRAW launch dates. It's good news for Xbox 360 owners who will be playing Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter a whole week earlier than previously announced, with the title now due out on the 10th of March 2006.

PC Owners however will be cursing as their version is now not expected before April and the release date is now a rather vague "Q2", which could be anytime before July 2006.

www.ghostrecon.net (http://www.ghostrecon.net) and ubisoft UK *confirmed*

Not a surprise at all! We have lack of a info! So it have been in the line with you and me... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif
it's time to assault on ubi headquarters!!!!

According to Eurogamer: 28/02/2006

The Xbox 360 version of Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter has had its release date changed again - but the good news is it's arriving early.

GRAW 360 is out on March 17th, with the Xbox version following a week later and the PS2 game due out on March 31st. PC gamers are in for a longer wait, though - their version won't arrive until "quarter two" now, which means some time this summer.

EuroGamer: Ghost Recon 360 out next week (http://www.eurogamer.net/article.php?article_id=63069)

according to the UK UBI webstore it's slated for

Release 1st Quarter 2006

The US store still lists march.

yeah, but the will change that also soon...

Pff really, really ****. I hope they will make the game better.

I want also to hear why the pc-version is delayed (again)? From ubisoft?

ZA_Corax
02-28-2006, 08:21 AM
From the sounds of things they delayed it due to the fact the UBISOFT has nothing to show for E3.

Splinter Cell: Double Agent (delayed)
Heros of Might and Magic V (delayed, maybe will have a showing... slim chance)

E3 2006 = May 10-12, 2006

Like I said before this is probably due to some financial woes... but eh who listens...

Well last years E3 was all about next gen consoles... this year it will probably be show casing the lastest and greatest which would include Ageia's PPU. So what else would be a good product to show case it than an FPS designed for it... GRAW PC

FYI next week they also make an official announcement of the new nVIDIA 7900GTX 512MB. So this will bring down the price of the 7800, in any case its still rare to find a 7800GTX 512MB. Oh by the way don't rush out and buy the 7900GTX , according to some intel its only 10% faster than the 7800GTX... I have a feeling this is due to drivers...

But I digress, don't fret, E3 is just around the corner...

Lt.Henkie
02-28-2006, 08:29 AM
they will show brothers in arms 3 at the E3, that game will be great with Unreal engine 3.

02-28-2006, 08:37 AM
Personally I think Gearbox lost its momentum with Earned in Blood. Don't get me wrong Road to Hill 30 was awsome, but I think its had its time... I could be wrong maybe the new Unreal engine 3 (kick@$$!!) might bring some life to it... we have to wait and see...

But for GRAW PC... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

Ubisoft= the best ridiculous videogames company.

All we get until now is sucking info.

November 2005: first DELAY. And they say to us that the extra time 'd be ok to make a better game.

January 2006: SECOND DELAY. From February to end of March, that means April.

Now the third delay.

RIDICULOUS!!

Time for "get info\demo\game soon" has finished.

Could some please post an exact quote of this release, as I (among many) did not receive the news in my inbox...

Even on ghostrecon.net or ghostrecon.com I could not find an official announcement.

I found news of an official announcement from UbiSoft UK, but no one has actually posted any hard information.

Does anyone have any links or press releases to show us?

It isn't that I don't believe the release date changed, I just want to hear it from the source, rather than a fansite...

UBI devs say thay whant the game to be right for the PC gamer as thay know we diehard GR fans will whant a good all round tactical game .

And befor anyone of you wannabe finacial marketing managers start harping on about microsoft deals and blhaa blhaa blaa FORGET IT i have herd it all befor !! you have no clue what deals have been done ..so don't .

Thay don't give a rats stink hole about us .

I was going to remove the last bit ... but then i thoght ... " thay don't even read the posts here anyway "

Yup, ive said it before, its GR2 all over again.
I cant belive it...its so low of ubi, im starting to hate them, for real, i hate the suckers that ***** us over.
Im so mad right now, and it makes me mader that its over a ****** video game.

I hate you ubi, i hope you fail and that your company crashes.

Unlike GR2, this time they have actually hired a development team. They have gone so far as to invest the money.

This game will come, but you should allow for a serious development time. I.E. NOT 5 months, NOT 9 months and NOT 12 months. Give them a year or two and you'll get your game.

Everyone needs to chill out... first of all you've been waiting for a few years, are you all telling me you can't wait a few more months. Second, would you rather the game come out now and be sh*tty, or wait and have it beat the X360 like no other. I mean we all love Ghost Recon, but we all have to remember its just a game, and we can't let it tear us apart like this... we all need to just get a grip and relax.

how dare they. Announce they are working on a game, then don't release stuff they don't have to not create hype to placitate the rabid fan base who then could have complained of being led on and over hyped.

I really don't think they could win either way. How are any of you sucked into anything? They said they are making the game, that they think it's a good one and that's about all. The constant demand for demos/movies/etc from the forum is a self-created hype over the fact that they are making a game. What I haven't seen is a non-stop stream of media claiming this to be the greatest thing ever with tons of flash ads with concept art, etc. Then I could see people being upset on a delay.

They said they canceled GR2 for pc because they had come so far with the development on GR3 and this was like 8 months ago?
And a product dont have to be **** because it wasent developed under a long period of time (2-3 years), look at BLACK, they started the development in January 2005...

And just because S.T.A.L.K.E.R been delayed and under development for 6 years it means then that it will be awsome?

All the dudes on this forum ( bar a few idiot that i think are hired by ubi to keep us all calm ) have been waiting for this game (not to mention ghost recon 2 ) for a very long time , The get fed with BS and kept in the dark like mushrooms .

Thay get given video and screenshots from a console and told its PC footage ...Thay get told in dev chat's that the game will be out last year ... then this year q1 .. then q2 ... and so on .

Some of them have payed cash out on preorder and been told agin in dev chats that a demo will be ready by the end of this mounth .

Thay get given a download for a tool called desk com to give them news on the PC game AND IT DONT WORK .

I don't blame them for being mad ...Let them have a say and let UBI see how thay are treating the fans of the game .

I do however agree with you on one thing ... i would rather a good game than some bit of **** just to make them MORE money out of us

The fact that everyone demands and flys off the handle is completely INAPPROTRIATE. What gives?

Cool out man. Not trying to tell you what to do and I respect your right to be Pizzed Off. So, I'm going to tell you a joke.

This blonde really wanted to go ice fishing. She'd seen many books on the subject, and finally, after getting all the necessary tools together, she made for the nearest frozen lake. After positioning her comfy footstool, she started to make a circular cut in the ice.

Suddenly---from the sky---a voice boomed, "THERE ARE NO FISH UNDER THE ICE!" Startled, the blonde moved further down the ice, poured a thermos of cappuccino, and began to cut yet another hole. Again, from the heavens, the voice bellowed, "THERE ARE NO FISH UNDER THE ICE!"

The blonde, now quite worried, moved way down to the opposite end of the ice, set up her stool, and tried again to cut her hole. The voice came once more, even louder: "THERE ARE NO FISH UNDER THE ICE!"

She stopped, looked skyward, and said, "Is that you, Lord?"

The voice replied, "NO, THIS IS THE RINK MANAGER!"

All we get until now is sucking info.

November 2005: first DELAY. And they say to us that the extra time 'd be ok to make a better game.

January 2006: SECOND DELAY. From February to end of March, that means April.

Now the third delay.

RIDICULOUS!!

Time for "get info\demo\game soon" has finished.

Official Release Update dated today 28th Feb.

Paris, France €" February 28, 2006 - Ubisoft, one of the world€s largest video game publishers, continued to increase its share in key world markets in January 2006. The continued sales of titles that were launched over the Christmas holiday and the success of the European launch of Rugby Challenge 2006 in mid-January, have allowed Ubisoft to record high growth and to reinforce its position in a challenging environment due to the arrival of next-generation home consoles.

Ubisoft is ranked:
- 5th independent publisher for consoles for the month of January in the United-States , recording a 42 percent gain and achieving market share of 5.8 percent, +2.2 points
- 3rd independent publisher in the United Kingdom recording a 41 percent gain and achieving market share of 8 percent, + 1.7 points
- 2nd independent publisher in France recording a 32 percent gain and achieving market share of 7.5 percent, + 1 point
- 3rd independent publisher in Germany recording a 3 percent gain and achieving market share of 6 percent
- 3rd independent publisher in Spain achieving market share of 6 percent


€œThe success of titles that were launched during Christmas carried over into the month of January despite a market slowdown. This contributed to our sharp growth during the first month of the year and our increased market share. With the performance of Rugby Challenge 2006, Ubisoft is reinforcing its ability to enter new segments successfully, for instance in the sport segment. The fiscal year-end will be very strong with launch of Far Cry Instincts Predator" for Xbox 360" video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, Tom Clancy€s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter", Blazing Angels" Squadrons of WWII, and And 1 Streetball," announced Yves Guillemot, Chief Executive Officer of Ubisoft Entertainment.


Investor Relations Contact: etc etc etc.

As you can see the PC version is not listed.

So is the PC version put back as yet,? no.
Ubisoft have not made a press post about any delay.

If the game had been delayed that statment would have been in the above statment.


I will not believe this until they make a press statment.

Allowing this sort of confusion to manifest itself on public forums is both wrong and and even more so, poor, to neglegent response to the costomer base.

To any Ubisoft Rep that is reading this forum and who is in a possition to rectify this
appalling mess that you call a press release system, who ever is doing the job at the moment, sack them and get some one who knows how to release information to the public in an orderly fashion.

The information On the delay has come from Ubisoft UK but Paris say no.

This needs clearing up ASAP.

It could just be websites getting mixed information from hype... If it is true, Im sure GR:AW will be out at max by the beginning of Summer... remember people... JUST A GAME!



AND I NEED STRESS RELIEF NOW

Here is a thought:

Get off the UBI ban wagon and start asking questions.

Anyone foolish enough to ignore the truth is surely apart of some matrix!

I don't care what you think it is Colin, reality says we don't have any information on the pc and we probably never will.

Instead we get a half baked can of **** like, "Lock Down."



And if I'm wrong please except my apology, with a box of tissues!

No wonder the estimated percentage of gamers is supposed to decline to 44% by 2011, because campanies like Ubisoft can't multi-task and make more than one game at a time.

I spoke to shareholder relations people, after listeneing to them go through the PR jargon I asked about GRAW. They had this to say "all versions are on schedule and will be released as per previously stated street dates".

If their wrong then the loop got cut off somewhere in Ubi Soft.

Some of you are dreaming if you think it hasn't been pushed back to Q2.

Well theres some obvious descrepencies between Ubi Canada (the guys I spoke too) and Ubi UK. Maybe it's only been pushed back in the UK? Ever think of that? Perhaps they need the extra time to localize it.

All sources on my side of the Atlantic point to a March 29th release.

Some countries in Europe require the game to be scene and tested by a Ratings commitee of sorts before a rating is given and the game can be sold.

In the US and Canada the manufacturer is reponsible for Rating the game correctly.

And since a release to one country in europe waold mean that people from others would make a drive to purchase a copy they may be delaying the european versions til the game is complete and rated for all countries. Many games have had European Release dates later than the US because of this reason.

I stopped by my local EB Games today and the Manager said that their European stores have an release date of Q2 2006, but the info regarding north america(which he said had just been updated early this morning,Tuesday, Was still showing shipping dates of March 28th.

Im not saying this is defenately the case here, just a possibility as to why the info for Europe and North America are differing.

if the problem that cause a new delay 'll be the rating, that for Europe is different from US, i hope that the game delay for one or two weeks.

Well, hes been sacrificed to the pc god. But even he wasnt enuff to calm the pc god and the game was still delayed.

Or maybe he s just laying low till the lockdown riots have subsided, and bracing himself for the GR3 delayed riots. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Hi guys

On behalf of the GRIN team I fell obliged to step in here and say we're sorry for the delay. I can't go out and talk on the reason but I know all you hardcore fans are really disappointed not to be playing in March. I wont jump around with fancy marketing words all I can say is that we are doing a hell of a effort to get this game out and at the same time as good as possible.

This game is to stand the test of time as GR1 did and that is no small thing. What we are into now is a lot of testing and balancing. And NO the AI is in fact one of the best ever created if you like tactical play that is.

I hope some screens or videos can be released very soon to back up my words.

As for the X360 it looks great and I truly think the console fans will get what they want.

As for the PC fans we take a totally different approach and I think both games are rocking. Now we just want to make sure the PC is really all it can be.

Appologies

Bo

GRIN
