Delayed: BioShock 2, Heavy Rain and More

posted in: Game News 0


Update: Add Mafia II, Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne III to the list of delayed games for TakeTwo.

It seems like publishers and developers like to start the week off with disappointing news.

Such as game delays.

TakeTwo’s BioShock 2 was pushed to 2010 which starts November 2009, but don’t expect it this year. It’s definitely a 2010 title. And here’s why:

“.. it was essential to invest the additional time to ensure that this title will deliver what its fans expect and deserve.”

Unlike BioShock 2, Sony’s Heavy Rain was delayed until 2010 for strategic purposes.

“Most publishers today realise that it’s not ideal to release a new IP or a new genre just before Christmas. It’s a very crowded place to be, and certain games need more space to live their life.”

The last piece of game delay news involves StarCraft II. Despite not having an official release date, analysts are expecting Blizzard’s real-time strategy game to be a 2010 title as well. I’m not surprised.

Bethesda tops off today’s delay news with a delay of Fallout 3 downloadable content for the PlayStation 3 which was pushed into September 2009.

Fallout: New Vegas Announced

posted in: Game News 0

Hey did you want more Fallout? Bethesda & Obsidian Entertainment announced today that Fallout: New Vegas will be coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Who’s Obsidian? They’re the resurrected remains of Black Isle Studios AKA the guys who created the original Fallout and Fallout 2. Is Fallout:New Vegas a sequel to Fallout 3? Not quite:

“It is not a sequel to Fallout 3,” Hines said. “It’s simply another Fallout game in that universe.”
