Ubisoft delays 2008 shooters
Wednesday 12-Dec-2007 2:50 PM Haze, Far Cry 2 and Brothers in Arms all see slippage in 2008
14 Comments
Ubisoft has offloaded its weekly release schedule, revealing a handful of delays for its 2008 shooters Far Cry 2, Haze and Brothers in Arms.

As if we didn't know already, the French publisher has confirmed that Free Radical shooter Haze won't make it into the shops this year, and is now destined for release in "early 2008".

Meanwhile Far Cry 2 has seen a month delay, putting its release back to March - though from what little we've seen of it so far we'll be impressed if it even makes it out that early.

The really bad news is that Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway has been delayed again - though only on PlayStation 3. PS3 owners will now have to wait until March for the Gearbox shooter - one month later than Xbox 360 and PC gamers.

Isn't it about time Xbox 360 and PS3 games actually came out at the same time?

If it means we will get by with only one patch instead of the 80 or 90 Far Cry needed, let it slip! :lol:

Far Cry 2 will come out Nov 08.

We'll be lucky to see it next year if at all.

Far Cry 2 is shaping up well. I bet all the great ideas aren't implemented well though.

From the Far Cry 2 forum , this opinion

Ubi analyst report and call said FC2 was coming in fiscal 2009, which I would believe more than any website posting.

Ubisoft considers their 2009 fiscal year to start from April 2008 and go until March 2009. This means the earliest we would see it would be April, not March. It could slip further to the June timeframe mentioned in the last post.

I agree that I would rather have them get it right than rush it. And this delay may explain why we have not seen much info, details, HD walkthroughs, etc. The 'real' stuff really starts coming out a month or two before launch for most games.

Considering Ubi just knocked their earnings out of the park due to Assassins Creed, this may also have been a strategic move to strengthen their next fiscal year by having FC2 sales show up there. Who knows?!?!? Just hoping the delay is more strategic than technical.

I believe that they ended the game - the creative part of the game - . Some developers with contact with the community leave the team and go to other projects . Now the more difficult part , the game polished without bugs in the PCs :D

I just wanted to make a quick announcement that I am no longer with the FC2 team. I've had a great time with everyone both on the team and in the community, however it was time for a new adventure. As of now, I am simply another fan sitting on the sidelines waiting for this great game to finally release, so rest assured that you aren't completely rid of me

According to what Clint Hocking said in an interview, the first Alpha of the game was in September. In November they has the version Alpha according some developers. I have one far source about this . Very far but source

Yeah, and Wal-Mart said Unreal Tournament 2007 was doing to be released in early 2007 or 2006.

Please close this thread, it's inaccurate and only confuses people. :)

I like that indoor screen. Nice detail in there.

Hmmm, maybe they're using screen-space ambient occlusion similar to CryEngine 2 and the new Unreal Engine 3 update. Looks neat. :)
