Earth 2160 Delay

Zuxxez sends news that Earth 2160 has suffered a delay, and that the science fiction RTS sequel is now expected for a Q2 2005 release:
This is news with an added request for patience: Zuxxez Entertainment’s high graphics demands for their new baby Earth 2160 is to have an effect on the planned release date. The small team in Worms, Germany estimate that the game will first be released in the second quarter of 2005.

Many of you have already had a sneak preview of Earth and have seen various screen shots and the excellent trailer. The graphics quality is a real eye opener, but the sheer mass of highly detailed 3D objects needs more time than was originally anticipated to bring the fans the quality they expect. “ Although the team has been expanded the high resolution textures, light and bump maps have simply cost so much more time than we had thought” says Alexandra Constandache, CEO of Zuxxez AG. “Now the writers and programmers can profit from the extra time by optimising the game play, balancing, and tweaking even more out of the Earth4 engine.” Zuxxez has decided it will not offer the fan community and the growing Earth market a premature compromise. Mr. Mirek Dymek, the project leader of Earth 2160 crossed his arms obstinately and said "The game is done, when it’s done and there is no way that we are going to follow the annoying trend of releasing an unfinished game on our public.”

All interested gamers can discover more about the 2160 under www.earth2160.com, see the trailer, first presented at the Games Convention in Leipzig this year, and a great many impressive screen shots. In the months from July to September Zuxxez counted more than 450,000 page impressions per month, climbing to 8 million and then to an amazing 10 million visits to the website from strategy and Earth fans world wide in October and November.

I haven't seen anything like that kind of unit design since...since...dang. Since Pax Imperia on the ancient Mac IIci around 1991 or so.

Regardless of what Zuxxez says, Earth 2160 is 156 years off.

STILL to be released before Duke Nukem forever
