Maybe it’s just the nostalgia talking, but it seems like video games used to come out when they were supposed to. Not anymore. In this console generation, video game delays are starting to become an expected part of the development cycle. A ton of games that were slated for release have been pushed back for a variety of reasons. What big upcoming games have been delayed? Read on to find out.
1. Tom Clancy’s The Division
Original Release Date: End of 2014
New Release Date: March 8, 2016
The Division is a third-person shooter that takes place after a pandemic has wiped out much of the U.S. population. The developers have stressed that the title is, in fact, just as much a role-playing game as it is a shooter. In an interview with IGN, the game’s art director, Rodrigo Cortes, said: “It has shooting, and is shooter-like… But it’s not a shooter with some RPG stats tacked on. It’s actually a proper RPG from the very beginning. There’s deep progression when it comes to loot, gear, and levels and you’ll be able to customize every skill, do exactly what you want, and choose roles.”
