Assassin's Creed Delayed, GRAW 2 Replacement 29

The next-gen beauty Assassin's Creed has been bumped out further into 2007, reports Gamespot. Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway is receiving similar treatment. Ubisoft is filling the hole in their lineup with Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2, which is some consolation. From the article: "GRAW 2 isn't the only thing Ubi is prepping for gamers' springtime. Also coming by the end of March 2007 will be seven more Wii games from the publisher, including 'one nonannounced new brand.' With the seven previously announced Wii launch games from the company, Ubisoft expects to have 14 Wii titles in stores before April 2007."

  • Game release date delays are almost always a good thing; if the developer does not feel the title is polished enough, please, please delay it and keep working on it. I wish more companies took the Blizzard / Valve route and waited until their games was not only finished, but polished to a fine sheen before release.

    Otherwise, you end up with KoTOR 2; a good game (could have been brilliant) turned into a major dissapointment by a rushed development cycle.

  • It seems to me that lately a lot more people have been denying the presence of consoles in their lives and returning to the oft forgotten PC. With Guild Wars: Nightfall, the next WoW, and HL2:Episode 2 just around the corner, I think the PC gaming market share will become stronger!

      Oddly enough, I use to be a huge PC gaming fan who's now turning back to consoles. I played all the FPS, RTS, RPG, MMO, games out there and am just missing the one thing that's good on consoles, platform action/adventure games. RPG's feel a little better to me on consoles as well, with the exception of the MMO kind. Of course, I'm also eager to pickup my Wii and try that new experience!

      I wouldn't say there's any kind of revival in anything. Games get pushed back all the time and won't kill a platform
