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.

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...

Bnet3433279d ago

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

Max Power3279d ago

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?

Nitrowolf23279d ago

true but at least they confessed they feel that they will probaly sell better once CODMW2 out of the way.

labaronx3279d ago

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"

Max Power3279d ago

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.

Etseix3279d ago

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!
