Ubisoft has just recently announced that Ghost Recon: Future Soldier will be delayed, yet again, this time to Q1 2012 or "The Future". The original release date was set for November 10, 2010, which was actually when I paid off my reservation for the game, ha! It was known by the the great majority of fans that a game of this caliber could not be realistically developed in this time frame and thus was delayed to April of 2011. Unfortunately, yet again, the amount of features they wanted to add and showcase at E3 2011 allowed Ubisoft the excuse of pushing back the release to this coming October, which was deemed acceptable after their unveiling of the game's new features and even Kinect compatibility which was heavily received with positive reactions. For that very same reason, Ubisoft pushes their game back into the future, hopefully to refine the game even further than where it already is. The brightside to all of this is the international beta for the game will be set in motion on January of 2012, for those who purchased a copy of Splinter Cell: Convictions.
The amount of hype this game has is stunning, with plenty of people claiming it will trump the multiplayer giant, Call of Duty, which is set to release its new installment Modern Warfare 3 on November 10. With plenty of games in the same genre coming out at the end of this year such as Battlefield 3 and Gears of War 3, maybe it was a smart move for Ubisoft to delay their game into the next year, but a lot of us are tired of waiting and plenty of people are gonna move on into other multiplayer games. Nonetheless, when the new release date is announced, the majority of us will flock back into Ubisoft's hands and give this "revolutionary" game a shot. So when you go to Gamestop to reserve your copy, unless they can travel to the future, their intended release date for October 1, 2011 is now officially wrong.
