So it's official -- though there has been no press release or anything. On Sega's AP page now it says the game is due in Spring of 2010.


:lol:


I'm a bit concerned that a specific date has been pinned down. That leads me (personally) to think that this game is delayed because it needs a lot of changes and work -- -not just because of a strategic decision to release the game in June because that would be better for marketing/competition or whatever other reason.

Its Sega and it turns out that Sega is a crap publisher.

I thought we weren't supposed to crap on Obsidian's current or past business partners?

Why should the previewers care if the game was delayed or not? It's not like it's an unique occurrence.

It could have been done a bit more subtlety, but let's face it, Sega just lost points with everyone.

They never had any points with me to begin with. It's not like they were curing cancer or feeding the hungry before and they canned the Aliens RPG just some time ago(a game which I was actually interested in).

It's not like they've made any official press statement or notice to the effect... Just a couple of pieces of rumour slipped into gaming news, and now a single date change on a website...

Definitely not earning points for how they handle it.

Because this doesn´t look like ordinary delay. It is more like let´s rebuild this **** from scratch.

Michelle Thorton confirmed?

It's all the female-option proponents' fault!

I blame Rorie. It's been nothing but calamity since he joined.

Throw Rorie overboard.

I'm sure Rorie will announce it when the date is fixed (or when he's allowed to talk about it), and unlike SEGA he knows his job, so we should wait for him for the official date imo.

Lord knows that's gonna change, though. Sega aren't going to turn round and go "y'know, the U.K.'s been getting shafted something chronic over release dates for years, maybe we should give it to them this year." It'd be nice, but y'know :D

Gamestop.com is now showing a street date 6/1/2010 :lol:

If true, that definitely sounds like a "take off and nuke the site from orbit" kind of situation to me.

Obsidian sure doesn't have much luck with publishers. Then again, the delay could be a good thing. I'd rather have a delayed highly polished game than an early release with problems (KotOR 2). If the delay is due to developing a new DRM system (NwN 2: MoW) though, I'll burst a capillary.
