Just to let ya know, GTA isn't coming out March, you probably meant Max Payne 3, also Ghost Warrior 2 got delayed to Q2 (the 1st one was kinda good, the 2nd may turn out even better, just not on the realistic side if that's what you want), and you forgot to mention Ninja Gaiden 3, Silent Hill HD Collection, Silent Hill Downpour, but yeah March is the worse month ever, I mean what's with all these big releases ?!
I think for Ubi it was the best move to make, I hope nothing turns to be released in May, it's not about GRFS being a tactical shooter, it is about the big releases, and since Ubi want to attract more people and make more fans, they will be looking for a better window (which is May), I always thought it would happen, now GRFS may break the 2 million sold unites mark
there is nothing coming out in april at all according to the sites i use. is April considered bad luck for game releases? surely having the only release for the month would be worth something
So, are the actual statements of Mr Lacey credible this time ?
You see my point ?
I mean it must be a dream to be a CoD fan; they know they´ll get every year a new one (with tons of (expensive) dlc) while the series stays true to its basic gameplay.
Yeh I remember that being said, but I also remember how many people weren’t happy with the idea and thought it would see the series diluted into a constant stream of titles with barely any upgrade from the previous
As to what’s true now, I’m not the person to ask, I know as much as you guys
The true reason is the one in the first post of this thread. The developers want to ensure the game is of the highest standards when it is released.
If you want to become a competent insulation layer for the rear exit of your CEO, you at the very least need to avoid obvious mistakes when you write ''official PR statements''.
For instance, everyone knows that developers have no say on the release date of a game. That kind of decision comes from upper management, with advices from the marketing department. Moreover, as obviously demonstrated by its sad track record, Ubisoft has never been bothered by the quality of its games, except when a particular game has a good probability to reach many many more than 2 million copies, such as Assassin's Creed for instance. As far as GRFS is concerned, Ubisoft knows that this game will be lucky to reach 2 millions sales.
And now you want us to believe that the devs have got the okay from upper management to spend even more time and money on the development hell that this game is?
I have a sneaking (no pun intended) suspicion that the delay is because of two things.. ironing out any bugs with Kinect compatibility and avoiding the March release flood. There ARE quite a few A titles coming out in March. I'm just kinda bent that we have to wait again, yes it's only two more months but it's been how long? six years? I'm praying that GRFS doesn't turn out to be like GRAW and GRAW 2.. honestly those were crap games. They completely abandoned the game play of GR 2 and Summit Strike, the two games that got me into shooters to start with.
