E3, Game Delays and Why Patience is a Virtue

E3 is famously the highlight of the games calendar for the year and allows gamers to get a taste for next generation titles on the horizon. Before we all get too excited over the next few days, we should remember that many of the games revealed 12 months ago have yet to materialise.

Exactly 12 months ago, we were all getting excited about Tom Clancy’s The Division, one of the most talked about games of the show, along with other titles such as The Witcher 3, Dying Light, Final Fantasy XV, Quantum Break and Kingdom Hearts 3, but it is rapidly looking like we will have to wait until 2015 to get our hands on any of these titles, which is two years since they were first showcased at E3.

We all remember Sony announcing that 20 new SCE Worldwide Studios games would be launched for the PS4 in the console’s first year and yet, after six months, we have only seen five, consisting of Playroom, Knack, Killzone Shadow Fall, inFamous Second Son and MLB 14.

Other show favourites from las... (Dying Light, E3, PS3, PS4, Quantam Break, The Order: 1886, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Good article. Its not that i'm impatient, i just hate the word "delay".

I wish pubs would give more freedom to their devs in terms of release dates.

Only devs know how finished their product is. EA and other pubs should stop pushing them to release games early.

The problem with all the delays is that so many games were moved to 2015. Publishers have delayed games due to steep competition, and if so many games are being clustered into one year, it makes me think that some of these games might get delayed even FURTHER to avoid being overshadowed by a big release now that many games are set for 2015.

'it makes me think that some of these games might get delayed even FURTHER to avoid being overshadowed by a big release now that many games are set for 2015.'

I thought that was the case with Watch Dogs, to avoid direct competition with their own IP AC4. We know now that it simply wasn't ready and I think that's a case across the board. The PS4 was rushed to market so it didn't release behind the XB1 like last time around. In Sony's case at least, eveything showcased was to build anticipation to shift the console yet drive club, the order, deep down etc have all been delayed.

We're being tantalized with a lot of great games that are nowhere near ready. We've seen a lot of delays as-is...

I never bought a console the first year before, so this is new for me...but 2015 is literally bursting with games at this point. I shudder when I hear yet another game is delayed.
