Ghost Recon has met an unfortunate delay due to the competitive nature of the christmas quarter.
I'm not that concerned. Conviction got delayed heavily and turned out pretty much okay.
1st delay, not bad. If there is another delay, then I will complain.
but Conviction was delayed more than once
I hate it when they rush the release and the multi player take 3 or 4 updates to get it right and they never get it right because the cd is hard coded. I want it to work out of the box... NOT like Gears aka Glitches of War I and II (rushed into production). One more game like that and I'm smashing the CD. So, take your time, get it right, make it solid. A lot of people are counting on this title.
no offense but when's the last time [no matter how long a game was in development] did a game get it right all the way? every game i know of receives some sort of patch / fix,whether it was made a year or 4 from time of development.
typical of Ubisoft these days! they better off just trademark it on their name and it will still make sense!
are not in my trustworthy book of devs, not that you can nowadays...all money and no passion is the code this generation. No maybe am being to harsh after all EA did change...
I'm sorry, did you want them to rush the game for the holiday season? Would that be more honest? Ubi may have some scary tendencies, but a delay is almost always for the good of the gamers.
Quite a shame.. Ah well, It wasn't really on my radar to be honest. *dips cigarette into ash tray & takes another sip* It looks fun, don't me wrong.. But, you know.. There's Medal of Honor & CoD: Black Ops out there.. tough competition Ubisoft have got to compete agaisnt.. It definately looks fun from what I've seen out of the latest trailer though
gotta settle for black ops or crysis 2 now
Crysis 2 is comming out around March 2011 also. Looks like you'll be settling for CoD: Black Ops.
delay it forever. we certainly don't need ghost recon:halo lite...or any more PEW PEW PEW games period when you get right down to it.
I don't understand why developers don't just say that it's going to come out sometime within the year, and when they're certain that they're able to release it, then give a date.
Socom 4 is all I need.
Ghost Recon hasn't been a series that interests me since they went all "high tech" and futuristic with the GRAW series. The original GR was awesome for it's time but GR2 and everything since has been less than fun to me and not worth the money. Couple that with Ubi's retarded DRM garbage and SOCOM4 coming later this year and I seriously doubt I'll even care if this game ever gets released. The Tom Clancy based games have gone to hell recently and are mere shadows of what they once were. Hopefully SOCOM4 will go back to it's roots more instead of following the trend of "CoD'izing" like everything else.
The best Ghost Recon I ever played was Jungle Storm on PS2. GRAW2 was a good game when it came out, but I recently went back to play it and decided to get rid of it because it wasn't as good as I had remembered it. I hope they go back to a primarily FPS style.
Uh...can anyone say Call of Duty Black Ops!!!!! That is the reason for the delay...and to be honest, it is not a game you want to battle against!
You're probably right you know. The hype train will be pulling into the station around then, and lets face it, every kid with a console want's the newest CoD game for Christmas.
i think it has more to do with the fact that this winter you have Halo, Medal of Honor, Call of Duty... who would want to compete against those? I would have moved it to 011 too.
SOCOM 4 would really be the only direct competition for Ghost Recon. I don't think Halo:Reach, CoD:BO, or even MoH really stand up in the tactical shooter subgenre. Perhaps they are delaying it to add Move support, as well as avoid the rest of the shooter crowd? Maybe some minimal Natal support too (like.. for something not time sensitive, like team command gestures).
Well if it worked with Splinter Cell Conviction...
what comp. are they talking about ? my only must buy 360 at the end of this year is Reach
With: Brink Medal of Honor COD: Black Ops Crysis 2 there was no way in hell future soldier would survive.
don't make the wii version suck add online,wii speak,all the content the other version get,classic controller support and ubi I know you got the cash pull a monster hunter 3 and make gamestop demos please. please make the demo support online so you can improve it like what bunji doing.
Nobody and I mean nobody is competing with Call of Duty: Black Ops. Crysis 2 better be the greatest FPS EVER made to have the unfortunate honors of sitting in between Halo Reach and Call of Duty: Black Ops. Treyarch is already mimicking Modern Warfare 2's advertising strategy..and Halo Reach will destroy ever record on the 360 this year. Ghost Recon has an opportunity to be next years suprising Battlefield: BC2 if it sits back and lets the cards fall into next year. i'd most definately hype the game at E#..Just wouldn't drop too close to Gears... Evil
I & a million others can't wait for this game, COD isn't important to us.
You may.but a million others won't because the game will get buried under the clutter of the other FPS launches.. Don't believe me..look at Ubisoft's own statements..they know what's going on I still LOVE GRAW 1 and 2..but why waste a launch on a date that will have one of the elite shooters out there not have the success it deserves Not even an argument..in this economy..they wont..
