Jet pack-tastic action game Dark Void has been delayed into 2010 "to avoid competition with releases of major titles of other companies," publisher Capcom announced today.
I like their honesty. Now if only they'd bring back Onimusha...
Yeah no kidding. Onimusha was great. Too bad though this game looks really good. Looks like a busy 2010 is heading our way.
ahhh man, are you serious. another one. wtf. my '09 list just keeps getting shorter and shorter. what direct competition are they worried about exactly??? there aren't that many games coming out at the end of the year now. and the high quality titles (MW2, Uncharted 2, etc) are already going to pwn this game. wouldn't matter if it came out 3 years from now. EDIT: you know what, MW2 and Uncharted 2 are going to own software sales this holiday season. i mean sure, Halo 3 OSDT will prob do good, but those 2 are gonna run the table.
I want Dino Crisis 4 ... :(
Breath of Fire? Please Capcom!! Breathe life back into that Fire! The flame only needs oxygen to thrive!
This is the second time this game has gotten delayed... I remember Dark Void was displayed at E3 last year, and was supposed to come out last Fall, then it got delayed to 09', now it's pushed to 2010. Basically the game is Gears of War with Jet Packs. For now I'm not expecting too much from this game judging from the gameplay I've seen.
Onimusha 5 or Dino Crisis 4 would be great, instead they put development force into a title they aren't even confident enought to launch against the few great titles that are still coming this year. Don't get me wrong, I know Uncharted, Ratchet, Forza and COD are still schedulled for this year, but compared to the many games we were hyped for this year that have been moved to the next (God of War, Alan Wake, Heavy Rain, Mass Effect, The Agency, Splinter Cell, Bioshock, Final Fantasy, etc) I don't see this much better time for Dark Void.
Holiday 2009 is shaping up to be the worst of this generation... All due to evil Activision and Call of Duty...
sorry your wrong
The hell? Uncharted 2, Ratchet CIT, H3 ODST, MW2????? Far from the worst.
This fall is crazy, I am glad games have been push back, I would not have been able to buy them all. There still a ton of games coming that I want to play, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, Wet, Rachet and Clank 2, MW2, Uncharted 2, Alpha Protocol (don't sleep on this game), Assassin's Creed 2, GTA 4 DLC, Halo: ODST, Dragon Age: Orgin, Tekken 6, Left 4 Dead 2 and even Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 ( the 4 player online co-op will be insane). These are confirm games that are going to be good, Dark Void did the right thing.
goddammit i wanted to play that
they are delaying it to 2010 to avoid competition? But isn't that, what seems, everyone is doing? Which means they'll have more competition?
true but at least they confessed they feel that they will probaly sell better once CODMW2 out of the way.
i know right now they have more. so my biggest concern now is that all the original games scheduled for release around that time (GOW3, Crackdown 2, Lost Planet 2) may all be pushed back as well to avoid "competition"
I doubt GoWIII will be pushed back because of competition. Perhaps the others might, but whose to say, and it is refreshing to actually get a dev to admit what they are facing.
la ill have to disagree with u, GOW indeed cant be afraid of *competitors* ..thats..... well.. smthing UNBELIEVABLE
Feck COD. It's way too overated! Freaking 6 hour campaign with sub hd graphics and twitchy online mp! BTW I loved Cod4 sp but come on now you play one of them you play them all. WAW was pretty much COD4 in a different setting. They even had the same slow motion ending similar to cod4 ending. I finished it in ONE freaking sitting. Any game you can finish in one sitting and not feel tired isn't worth full price. And now all thse games being pushed back is getting retarded. i don't want CODMW2 this year!
Everything has gotten delayed already!! What are you afraid of? There is no competition anymore. The coast is clear.
by competition they mean: Modern Warfare 2 and Halo
some times i ask why do 360 fanboy retards like you can't at least try to have a non fanboy name really it's just to obvious but i will ask you this out of MW2 , Halo 3 ODST & Uncharted which won best of show best graphics and best console game at E3 . EDIT below sir you have left me amazed with your retardation ok here's PS3 2009 line up : KZ2 , MLB 09 The Show ,inFAMOUS , Uncharted 2 , Demon's Souls , Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 , Rachet & Clank ACiT here's 360 line up Halo Wars, Halo 3 ODST , Forza 3 & L4D2 that's it so what i'm trying to say you are the imbodyment of pure fanboy retardation
Poor droids, I hate to be you with the constant naguing and looking for excuses, just to be embarased every time. Capcom could make a killing by releasing the title to the PS3 since they dont have any games this year, sorry I forgot that the average sale per game in the PS3 is 130,000. Ok. so, its not worth it and like most third party developer its just too much for an inferior format. Sony should get out off the gaming market and come back in about 29 years when they probably be healthy again or bankrupt. The cell its coming, the cell its coming, and the flop continues to amaze society.
Ok, I'll ask you this retarded PS3 fanboy, out of Halo, MW2 and Uncharted 2 which one do you think is going to flop? Hint: it's a PS3 exclusive
if i ever saw you face to face i would kick you in the nuts for calling me a PS3 fanboy and for being a retard Uncharted 2 won't flop unless your talking sales because that's all you ppl do talk sales
OMG I just got threatened by a nerd which is also happens to sleep with his PS3, in his mom's basement. I'm shaking right now. You PS3 fanboys supposedly don't care about sales, but I see you on every sales thread. Why's that? Yeah, you guys are just a bunch of homeless hypocrites.
Pathetic. Sad. Really. Out of those 3 which one has the most chance of being GOTY? Hint: It's a Ps3 exclusive.
ironic how you call me hypocrite while fanboys like you always condemn games exclusive to one system but when they bring it to your system you welcome it and call it great hah you fanboys are a pathetic bunch and i wonder why you think i live in my mother's basement and sleep with my PS3 i wonder if it's because that's your life style or because your so angry inside that you have to insult ppl with weak pathetic insults and make up how that person lives , i don't live in my mother's basement i have an apartment t o live in , i don't sleep with my PS3 i have a girl for that a real one , i'm no nerd but i am a very disturbed person ppl have been afraid of me even my former high school teachers were afraid of me afraid of what i'll do , i don't expect a waste of life like you to believe me but just so you know i don't have to worship my system like a god to enjoy it i can buy a Wii or 360 any time i wish and see a 360 or Wii game and actually be excited for it while ppl like you can't have a happy pathetic life
Lol, you just confirmed that you're a retard.
explain how i'm retarded i said i'm disturbed as in i'm insane probably even legally insane and have a sick desire to eat human meat i don't see that meaning i'm retarded it means i should be locked up
Good lord, I don't care about Modern Warfare. Someone take the initiative and realise not everyone wants MW2 and release some other games!
2k games still releases borderlands, and or the lawsuit between activision and the developers of brutal legend doesn't force a court ordered hold on release....
Doesn't matter what we think. I loved COD4 and no doubt I'll love COD6, but, deep down its just a better dressed game, unless of course there is something massively new we are missing. Despite other games getting lesser marks for no new innovation etc etc, we all know 1) this will get amazing scores and 2) it will sell millions off the back of COD4's success Nothing against it, but sure is a shame all these games are getting delayed.
wow MW2 is making all these great games get delayed, even though i am going to purchase it i was hoping on purchasing more then just that. well here hoping for AC2 doesnt get delayed. thank got uncharded 2 is next month and not mw2 month
my holiday shopping list has lost two more games this week.... the main 360 exclusive i wanted and another multiplat.... my real concern here is if dark void is pushed to early 2010 does that mean lost planet 2 will be pushed back later in 2010.... and where is dead rising 2?
This modernization of warfare is becoming problematic,or so it would seem.Release COD4.5 and end the madness so that we may move on with our lives.
They basically said, we have another Bionic Commando on our hands. Come on Capcom, WTF is going on!
Of getting lost in the holiday shuffle. When people buy gifts for gamers (read: non-gamers/parents) they either buy what they know or what floor people will push on them (read: well established game franchises). With bigger games coming out, especially MW2, smaller games (maybe not small, just not blockbuster) have to worry a bit. If they can push it a few months where it's drier in terms of other games, their visibility is increased exponentially. I don't think it is at all indicative of a lesser quality game (at least in this case). P.S. - I got Bionic Commando for 20 bucks and I actually enjoy it (like it, not love it)...maybe it's because I was braced for something god awful, maybe it's because I got it cheap, maybe it just speaks to me...but I like it.
Sales Wise - CoD6 has got to scare most people. Quality - UC2!!! I hope UC2 sells a couple million in its first week... one can dream.
They delayed it to an even more crowded time, this game is broken or something, I call BS.
their scared of halo and cod
i doubt one of the best companies are afraid of C0ck of Doody Modern Gayfvckstupid 2 ( Arby & The Chief joke ) and Halo 3 ODST
Another one bites the dust.
It's more like they don't like throwing a new IP to the wolves.
*claps hands* ...game looks awesome btw.
For 2010: Dark Void Splinter Cell Conviction Bioshock 2 Singularity Gran Turismo 5 Bayonetta God of War 3 Heavy Rain MAG (maybe) Darksiders Alien vs Predator Alan Wake Dante's Inferno Mass Effect 2 Sins and Punishment 2 White Knight Chronicles Final Fantasy 13 Final Fantasy 14 Split Second Lost Planet 2 Dead Rising 2 Red Steel 2 Red Dead Redemption Mafia II Diablo 3 Beyond Good and Evil 2 Max Payne 3 Ghost Recon 4 Rage Aliens: Colonial Marines I am Alive Resonance of Fate The Agency The Grinder

...maybe you should fax them this list.
Diablo 3 is not coming out next year
yea that list is ridiculous. These companies are going to have to take risks and release some of those games for summer 2010. releasing these games in spring and fall will be really bad for them just because of GOWIII and Halo especially.
that list is scary. Damn you Modern Warfare, Damn you!
Ok I am just as upset as everyone else is about all these delays, but bashing modern warfare 2? Seriously? The sequel to perhaps the greatest FPS this generation by Infinity Ward, is coming 11.10.09! And so what if it looks similar to cod4? oohh as if that was a bad thing LOL! The formula may be the same but they added a bunch new gameplay elements, the set pieces will still be epic, and it will be even more polished the MW. Just like GOW 3. We cant blame the game for being so good and popular, it is how it is and we just have to accept that instead of bashing MW.
That is not the best fps. That title probably belong to bioshock(best story on any fps) And in multiplayer he would be against Killzone(tech wise codmw2 doesn't have a chance and Killzone have actual plot) or Halo (more popular and has plot). Call od Duty is a great multiplayer but nothing more, single player is something forgettable to say the least. Besides how many call of duty you need to play b4 realizing that all and i mean all of them are the same and feel the same.
activision delayed CoD: MW 2 to 2010 ? xD
MW2 is coming 11/10/09 and this was due out in September? How does the sale of a game 2 months later affect this? Publishers need to grow a pair. It used to be they were too scared to release outside of the holiday season. Now they are too scared to release during it.
well look what happened to Warhawk before Halo 3 launched. Warhawk was a great multiplayer game,people were buying it until Halo 3 came out, and that was in a span of 3 weeks before the launch of Halo 3. its just too much of a risk to release a new ip right next to a very popular IP, and thats despite being on different platforms.
2010 is much worse than this year (as in better games, more competition)... i cannot even come up with enough games to buy with my credit this year.
theres no way between jan and march company are gona release a bunch of games
well the game doesnt look all that good to start with
So basically you and everyone has delayed their games so now at least in my case I won't even bother with Dark Void when I probably would of picked it up this year. Next year is even worse, with GoW3, Mass Effect 2, DeadRising 2, Lost Planet 2, Alan Wake, Heavy Rain.. There just is no room for Dark Void in 2010 for me. 2010 is shaping up to be one of the most epic years this generation has seen if all these games do hit in 2010.
This is sad, I am looking forward to this game and have been for a while. Lets hope they put this delay to good use and keep working on the game.
Yet MW2 continues to fuel the fire,it aims to succeed and it will.No doubt.However,when the fire threatens to consume everything around it,concerns arise.Delays because of MW2 or another, HOT game? I suspect it is a combination of both mixed with the realisation that GT5 will hit in late Nov.UC2 only feeds the flame,in fact it may quell them,if initial impressions mean anything.GT5 Nov?? call me informed later,call me foolish now.
Delayed to 2010...? To AVOID major releases? L... O... L...!
stop tyring to hide the fact that you like the ps3. you like it so much you put it as your picture you only call it the gaystation because you hide your gay hardcore man on man photos on it. your so gay you got your ps3 in pink. but you should not beemberrased about being gay. because its ok i u like guys dat way, its ok that you take it up the @ss, and its ok that you start wacking off on your ps3 because you cant get enough cell power.
i played the demo at Comic Con, and the game needs A TON of work. no way it would be finished this year anyways, unless they want to push out a crappy game. no they are not delaying to avoid competition, they are delaying to work on the game longer and make it fulcking presentable. honestly i dont even know why they bothered demoing the game at comic-con it was so bad. the potential is there, but the audio was broken, the cut scenes froze up, the graphics are pixlated, the AI was retarded, and the controls were wonky. so its a damn good thing they arnt trying to push its release cause it would be a huge failure.
Oh well.. another one bites the dust for now :| im sure MW2 will be good, but im more excited for operation flashpoint : dragon rising (this will stomp all over MW2)
NO! Bugger it. God damn, WTF. Jesus Christ. No. WHY?!? This was one of my most anticipated multiplats later this year. Sleeper hit!
