RAGE Delayed

RAGE has suffered a bit of a delay, as the game's official website for now reflects a new October 4, 2011 release date for id Software's upcoming first-person shooter on all platforms. The game was previously expected in the U.S. on September 13th, and in Europe on September 16th, so the presumably the new European date is October 7th. The delay is so-far unannounced, so it is unexplained.

Sealing the grave on EP3? I guess that depends on how you comprehend their statements on single player games. Would you call EP1 and 2 "isolated single player games"? Even with the addition of Alex, Barney, and Dog helping you along?

They didn't say they were done with single player. They said they were done with "isolated experiences". I think they've been on that road for a long time, which is exactly why EP3 is taking awhile. You can't just shit out a game experience that has useful sidekicks that don't annoy you to death.

I'm pretty sure that's not what they were talking about when when they said "isolated experience." I think they were talking about games that only have single-player. In the future, they'll make sure to include some kind of multiplayer component, whether that be competitive or co-op. That's why Portal 2 added co-op.

I wonder if the PC version will have proper adjustments. 3 weeks sounds about right to alter UI, FOV and stuff.

Yea the game is shaping up nicely IMHO. Looks like a lot of fun besides just a ground breaking engine. I suspect the date pushback was to avoid being rolled on consoles by GoW3.

Yeah, I'm unexpectedly interested in Rage. I already knew the environments would be beautiful, but I was surprised by how good the shooting action looked in a recent video. It certainly seemed more varied and frantic than I was anticipating.

Here's hoping that Id has retained enough of its original PC focus to produce a worthy PC version. Thus far, I'm quite optimistic.

One of the few shooters I'm actually curious about.
For the most part I could care less about modern shooters, except for the few exceptions.

I wonder why it's delayed. 3 weeks isn't much time to fix many game-related things. Not sure of the release schedule for other games this fall, could they be trying to avoid a crowded week/month?
