Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter Date Narrowed

Ubisoft sends along an announcement following-up on the recently adjusted release dates for Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter (story). While the previous report placed the "quarter two" release of the PC edition of the game at Summer 2006, the new update clarifies this will be this May while announcing the 360 edition is gold. They also send along a Q&A with producer Mathieu Girard about the delay:

Why do you delay the game?
To achieve better quality and deliver all the features we wanted to have in the game. GRAW PC is a project developed specifically for this machine so its development cycle was different from that of the other platforms.

Can you remind us what the main differences between consoles and PC versions are?
We have a gameplay that is very different from the gameplay of the console version; for instance the ghosts are controlled in a way that is specific to the PC, with a much more accurate order system. This involves adapting all the game content (including reprogramming completely the enemy AI) and tuning it to this way of playing. We shared the storyline and setting of the XBox 360, but all the rest had to be reworked, to appeal to a GR1 audience while at the same time taking into account the new PC specific features. The other major differences are, of course, full first person control, and PC-specific multiplayer modes.

What are the ambitions of the PC version?
We had some very ambitous designs for the multiplayer, and we did not advertise on the exact content until we were sure to be able to deliver it. Things such as simulating a fully interactive physical environment over the network were risky, but we are now comforted that the cooperative mode will deliver unprecedented experience of multiplayer gameplay. The domination mode is also very promising as it changes the control of areas to something more interesting than simply capturing flags. More info to come soon.

This as funny as Letdown having great AI and being a true tactical shooter. They got to get what's left of these franchises out of UBI's hands.
