The Elder Scrolls Online, Bethesda’s new MMO set in the universe that houses the worlds seen in Skyrim and Morrowind has been out on PC for over a month. It’s pretty divisive, with some unimpressed by the buggy game, and others wholly enraptured by its fantasy setting. The game was supposed to hit The Ps4 and Xbox One next month – but it looks like it’s going to be delayed.
We just got word from Megarom that unfortunately the release od Donald Bradman Cricket 14 has been pushed back from the 4th of April to the 8th of April.
For console gamers in South Africa, the Xbox 360 would have had to have been the platform of choice for Respawn’s mech-battler Titanfall. Before the whole thing was denied a local release, anyway. Only it’s starting to look like that version is not only ugly, but runs poorly too. And that rumours been given a bit of a shot in the arm, as the Xbox 360 version has been delayed a second time.
Don’t expect to see the upcoming racing game DriveClub anytime soon, because it looks like Sony is sending this project back to the pit crew for a further inspection.
No game is immune to delays, but dammit, it does sting when a big title gets pushed back a few months. It happened to Tomb Raider, it happened to Bioshock Infinite and last year Watch Dogs got held back for a 2014 release. Ubisoft, you got some splainin’ to do.
Watch Dogs, the much anticipated next-gen launch game that was delayed into 2014, is closer to a release date. No, we don't actually have a day or month that you can mark on your calendar, but we have some seasonal guidelines.
Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs, which stole the show as the only genuinely fresh thing to come out of 2012’s E3 conference, was meant to be released at the end of last year, to coincide with the launch of the new consoles from Microsoft and Sony. It’s been delayed for a bit of spit and polish. That’s a good thing too, Michael Pachter seems to think the game was “headed for disaster.”
Freefalling into the end of 2013, one game that everybody was waiting for was Watch Dogs. Originally meant to be released on current and new-gen consoles, those plans took a different turn when Ubisoft decided to delay the game until the second quarter of 2014. And it’s a decision that cost them quite a few bucks.
You could reasonably argue that there’s not much out for the new consoles right now, which is really rather quite typical of a new generation of consoles. It makes jumping, given the price, a little harder. that’s not helped at all by the fact that so many “new gen” games are being delayed. Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy-branded online multiplayer shooter The Division might be one of them.
I was terribly disappointed by the delay of Watch Dogs, even if I did understand that it was for the best. Maybe the game needed more polishing, or maybe Ubisoft just wanted to clear the decks so that it wouldn't compete with GTA V and AC IV: Black Flag. But that doesn't mean that they don't believe in their product.
