EA whacks The Godfather II release plans, delays game

Joystiq writes: "EA has revealed that its ambitious sequel, The Godfather II, won't be making its release later this month, stating that the game will instead arrive at retail sometime during the 2010 fiscal year. EA said the reason for this delay is to generate more excitement about the title and to help it capitalize more on the major release. Let's hope the extra time spent on developing the game really makes it as buzzworthy as EA hopes it will be".

Wow... This game must of had some major flaws to go from next month to who knows'10. I'm glad they just didnt release a broken game. I hope the time is used wisely and make a Godfather game like it should be.

I watched the Chop Shop developer play through and wasn't too impressed. The gameplay seemed ok, but nothing special. The graphics were underwhelming to say at least.

I never liked the use of the Godfather license, this game and the first really didn't seem to have much in common with the films...

EA seems to be really really strict with the quality of games nowadays, which is by no means a bad thing. I cant wait to see the next iteration of Dead Space and that other game... cant recall from the top of my head.

It's being pushed back 2-4 months.

These days, that's practically a given for any high profile title.

Good decision, this game was going to get hit by the Killzone 2 hype train

Considering it looked horrible. Wasted money and time on a pointless project, they really think this will have any chance when Mafia 2 comes out!? :S

TheColbertinator3304d ago

Mafia 2 will pwn.2K Czech will use the GTA4 engine for a true graphical powerhouse.Godfather 2 looks weak

iHEARTboobs3304d ago

Mafia looks good, i'm looking forward to that one.
