Ubisoft Delays Two Of Their Big 2011 Titles
Published on Tuesday, 16 November 2010 00:38
Two of Ubisoft’s bigger-planned titles for 2011, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and Driver: San Francisco, have been pushed from 2011 to their 2012 Fiscal Calendar. Both games were initially expected to arrive on store shelves by the end of March 2011 but with the move to Fiscal 2012, we could see them launch anytime between April 2011 and March 2012.
According to an Investor’s Call, the moves were made to help fine-tune both games and drop them in more favourable periods of the year. In other news, still no mention of I Am Alive which also has a planned Spring 2011 release date.
Here we are. The next generation of consoles is among us and it is finally time to start thinking about finally unplugging our beloved current-gen systems. Could there be a better swan song for one of these systems than taking a trip back to Rapture?
Whether it’s a rainy day, a sickness, or some other reason not to go outside and enjoy the beautiful summer air, video games are the perfect way to spend your time - that is, if you can find a game to play. In terms of releases, summer generally isn’t the most fruitful of seasons, and this year is no different. So what games could/should you be sinking your teeth into during the dog days?
Since its reveal at E3 2009, The Last Guardian has not resurfaced other than in rumours and in statements regarding said rumours. Sony admits to major studio problems during the game’s development, but constantly reassures those anticipating the game that it is still not, and will not, be canceled. So is this the year that we finally see the resurrection of The Last Guardian? In my opinion, the answer is a big fat NO.
Getting my first mount in World of Warcraft was a major milestone. It came at a time before Blizzard reduced the cost of training for a ground mount and the gold required seemed like an impossible sum when quests were doling out a few coppers. What's more, I was foolishly selling my gathered iron or mithril to in-game vendors rather than placing it up for auction. I won't get into the particulars of my moneymaking strategy but I will say that it wasn't effective and very indicative of my n00b status.
