Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Delayed Again

In the investor conference call following Ubisoft's 2010-2011 financial report, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot revealed Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, is still off in the, well, future, saying the military third-person shooter sequel is now due in the first quarter of next year. The game was first announced for release in the 2010 holiday season before it was delayed to this month. That previous delay was said to "provide additional time to our development teams to realize their vision" as well as to avoid the Christmas rush, and in an odd bit of déjà vu, the reasons this time are exactly the same, as Guillemot said: "It will be released in fiscal Q4 as we want first to have the best quality possible, as well as to avoid the very crowded Christmas landscape in the shooter genre."

By "saturated market" they mean "at the same time a new Call of Duty Modern Warefare game ships out".

i think that's what they're trying to avoid. MW3 might come out in november. it is a smart move since ghost recon on the consoles could never compete against the CoD series.

Not surprising. Ubisoft ruined the franchise back in 2003-2004 when they dismissed the PC market with console only versions then made the PC versions from the consoles all clunky. PC is what made Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six. Too bad they neglected both to the point there is no community like the old days with clan ladder etc.

I wish Redstorm would take back the license and give it the love it deserves.

Delays are normal for ubisoft. Bringing up the bottom line for investors.

Sounds like they don't know what 'vision' they want to make.
It is a little too late to think about vision the game was already up and running a year ago. Shouldn't they decide on things like this before they start writing codes?

The saturated shooter market is finally hitting it's toll. Can't be creative or it'll fail, can't be same old or it'll fail; must hit that multimillion sales number. <bites nails>

Duke Nukem will be a prime example on release, though ala Bulletstorm, dialog may be it's saving grace.

D'oh! Thanks.

He probably just copy and pasted the same text from the last press release. Last E3 they had a demo running and were supposed to release a MP beta also, wonder what happened.
