RS3: Athena Sword Delayed?

Update: Sam at GameSpot dropped a line to say that they've received confirmation from Ubisoft that the information on their online store listing mentioned in this story is incorrect, and that the game's release is still slated for November of this year.
Original Story: Online retailer listings are usually not reliable enough to take release dates they list too seriously, but the Ubisoft Store's Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3 Athena Sword listing obviously carries a bit more credibility than that, since Ubisoft is also the game's publisher. An update to the game's listing now carries a January 2004 release date for the Rainbow Six 3 add-on, while most other e-tailer sites still show the game as being available by the end of this month. Thanks gen.arg.

I don't know what everyone is gripping about, R6 games have never had a real high after release support. Don't get me wrong I love R6 games but this is the FIRST time they have actively fought cheaters and set up a dedicated server option for the game. Heck I can remeber for the longest time a very easy way to crash a online game by choosing a certian kit combo for Rogue Spear that I think wasn't fixed for many months after it was discovered. Its become a flaw with most companys now to release games that arn't ready to be released and then try to patch the heck out of them for the next few months, only when a game is being patched it seems to always cause more problems then if they had just finished it in the first place.

This game is "error" city for me and many others! This game is probably one of the most enjoyable games I ever played! BUT this error/crash problem needs to be addressed. They have lost alot of fun players already....

I think he is refering to the lack of proper support. It took them what... six or eight months to issue a patch that fixes bugs from the demo. And between demo and patch 1.41 they issued patch after buggy patch that fixed little and usually caused more problems.

The other patches said they fixed bugs but actually just made them appear less frequent. And usually intruduced more bugs. I am happy now but then again I took a two and a half month break from playing the game seriously.

A lot of people feel that way though. Feel that UBI ruined the R6 series. I love and hate the game depending on how it is running....

Just that time of year... 25% of the eagerly anticipated games will be delayed or canceled.

I wasn't planning on buying this one. But now that UBI has finally starting showing a little bit of competent support with the 1.41 patch I may.

Hard to believe it would be pushed back into next year. Unless they are thinking of dropping the add-on and just making it the sequel. Which has been done by others in the past.

Either way I'd say there is better than a 50% chance of me buying this one because I am in a clan. If I were not in a clan I would probably skip it as an add-on.
