Game is now officially delayed


Recommended Posts

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?

 

I am looking forward to new previews where everyone will act like nothing have happened.

 

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.

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.

Lucky for you guys UK SEGA store still tells us October and so do our retailers.

 

Well actually http://www.game.co.uk/lowdown.aspx?lid=115..._-topnav-_-day3

 

Tells us November 2009.

 

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

We have an official date people! The voices tell me AP will come Dec. 10. 100% confirmed shamanistic divination.

 

Goat entrails or something else? :lol:

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.

But what if the game is already polished and has all the intended content

xbox360achievements.org says "Alpha Protocol rescheduled for Spring 2010." Seems like a nice way to say "Hey gamers, guess what?...another title seems to have been delayed but we are tired of that word and so will now refer to all delays as schedule changes." Seems like other companies and people are trying to soften the blow of either the economy or game quality that is hurting this quarter.

Then we've got a 'what the heck is goin' on man?' situation. I just hope its not a stupid reason. I don't really know why, for instance, they would delay AP for fear of competition from other games. The only real RPG competition I see for AP is Dragon Age and I'm far more interested in AP.

 

Until they come out and say something its nothing but a guessing game.

 

10 bucks they want to add 100 new women to bed! :nuke:
