Default Stalker delayed....again....

http://www.shacknews.com/onearticle.x/34245

The first push back was from Nov. this year to Jan. 05, now they have once again pushed it back, this time to May 05...that is, until the next delay. They said their pretty much done with the game and refused to add co-op, because of time issues....so what gives....maybe they decided to add it? Or maybe another big releae is coming in Jan. so they needed to run away again?

I agree November is INSANE for games right now... but I DO think it is somewhat sad when STALKER had to run away from other "big name" games...

Hehe thought I was the only one. When it was announced delayed a few back I even made a post that I was glad. Way to many games I want and not enough money. And Jan 5 was shorter than expected, I thought they said 3rd quater.

Yeah it sucks that there are so many games coming out and breaking our banks, but most of the time it's not a good sign when a game is repeatedly delayed.

Huh, I though the game was delayed until March instead of January, so to me this isn't really that big of a deal. I don't mind if they have to take a little extra time to finish it up, there really are WAY to many games coming out at the end of this year and early next year to play from the looks of it (especially if you're a multiplatform gamer, I have 15 games I'm looking forward to playing in the next 4 months on PC and Xbox alone, not including a few PS2 and GC games I'm keeping an eye on). But to be honest I don't buy the idea that they're pushing the game back TOTALLY because there are other games being released around that time (at least not from the first delay, anyway), I think they just "misestimated the amount of time it would take them to finish it". Oh well, at least they didn't blame the delay on the leak

In a related note, new screenshots of Chronicals of Riddick have been released as reported by a link on that page, and it's still on track for a December release. At least this mean there will be 4 major PC FPS games released this year . Here's the article: http://www.worthplaying.com/article....thread&order=0

Did you actually read the context of his post? Before he read the news, he was under the impression that the game was going to be released in March instead of January. Upon reading it, he has determined it was no big deal that it will be pushed back until May because he originally thought it was coming in March in the first place.

And I can't believe I just had to explain that.
