Ubisoft has commented on the reasons behind today's delay of Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, explaining that the upcoming third-person shooter has been pushed back to FY2012 "to make the game the best it possibly can be".
from the day I saw the trailer I was like OMG awsome. Cant wait for this game to get released, love TPS shooters.
God damn! When did that happen? Today? Dammit Ubisoft. Good thing I got rid of Splinter Cell: Conviction when I did - summer beta my ass. If I were to keep believing that I'd still have that copy which is only worth like $5 now. Just better bring me a new Rainbow Six game soon after this Ubisoft.
Yeah, Definitely agree with a new Rainbow Six. But what i've seen from GR Future Soldier, looks brilliant. I cant wait, Off-topic 2012 will also have real good movies releasing. And 2012 olympics. What a year, What a year. I cant wait.
Don't forget the end of the world! That's a sure fire way to make the year go out with a BANG! =D
This entire year of gaming has been fairly unimpressive to me! There were a few decent games, but nothing I got too hooked on. I hate that most of the games I wanted got pushed back to 2011. There was a lot available this year, but I wasn't interest in most of it! At least 2011 will be a great year for gaming!
Is it me, or are huge date push backs becoming the norm for many major titles that aren't based on existing tech/are new IPs?
Yeah developers are finally realizing how shitty the unreal engine is for this generation. I'm with Blaze, I'd rather see Rainbow Six than Ghost Recon. There's a much larger fanbase/community for Rainbow Six than Ghost Recon. Ppl are still playing RB6 games online, while hardly anybody plays any of the Ghost Recon games.
so right honestly who actually thought ghost recon was anything other than a spinoff of rb6?
but those are both spinoffs of socom
You do know that Ghost Recon came out before Socom, so what game is copying which? Matter of fact, Rainbow 6 came out in 1998 and the first Socom game came out in 2002. So unless Socom pulled a Michael J. Fox and went back into time, Socom is a direct spin off of those games. You might want to check release dates for games before you post
socom had was more in-depth then ghost/rainbow six combine and was the first one to go online.
I hope this fiscal year is still around April or May!? If this game is delayed I'll be hurt almost to the point of crying!
Delays are important to improve the game but DAMNNNN!!!! 2012??
Meaning we could see it as early as April 2011.
Or as late as March 2012, right?
yup. i'll go ahead and expect the worst, so 2012 man. that sucks. was really looking forward to this game
April is early to you? Me, Early = Jan/Feb. Anything past is not early. Thats just me.
Son of a bitch! I was looking forward to this game so much, this sucks so hard. From the moment this game was announced I was anticipating the release, hopefully it will be worth the extra wait.
I was excited to jump on this with some friends. Sigh.. well, it should be good when its eventually released!
Well, the beginning part of the year just became more affordable yet again lol. Planned on getting: Dead Space 2, Killzone 3, inFamous 2, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and Gears of War3, and now with the delays of this and Gears 3, I only have three games I'm probably gonna buy. I'm disappointed by the release, but relieved for the money aspect of it.
I got the feeling if you have a 360, you're probably going to want to pick up Bulletstorm. I'm thinking its going to have the Gears 3 beta code.
Good lookin' on that. I'm not much of a MP player though. I definitely prefer a great single player experience. That said, if Bulletstorm reviews well and gamers like it, I'll definitely keep my eyes on it.
I will be picking up Bulletstorm and the Gears 3 delay plays a big part in that. But i kinda doubt they will have the beta in Bulletstorm, since the games are from two different publishers. Who knows, maybe EA and Microsoft will work out some kind of deal.
From what I've seen so far of the current gameplay, it has been underwhelming. If the delay really will give them time to get their game up to speed and beyond: I'm all for it. However though the moment they mentioned "fiscal year": I realized this could be a business ploy so that Ubisoft starts off strong and pleases the shareholders. What this means is that the game can be "done" for all we know months before and it'll sit there because of business-related reasons, which sucks for all gamers.
Maybe they realized that invisibility is boringly overpowered in single-player games after 10 minutes.
Damn was looking forward to this.
but Im sort of glad they pushed it there was waay to many shooters coming out around the same time kz/socom and many many others.
The Only Thing Copied Was Over The Shoulder And That Was By /6 Not Zipper @jjohan Alot Of People Still Play GR2 Wheres Your Info From
one of my fav. shooters.... wasnt this game a 360 exclusive ?
Oh well, I have KZ3, Socom and Brink to look foward to. Look like they missed the opportunity to grab some of my cash.
on next gen consoles and pc.....at least i hope so
I love the series was bummer when it went third person but they did a wicked job on it great graphics still i dont like stealth invisible stuff though if it was just like recon 2 i would be dam happy.
