That fuckin sucks, i'm actually pretty interested in this one, but i'm hoping the delay is to make it better and not just move it away from 'those 2 games' coming soon.

I hope so, as well, 'cause the latter will probably backfire.

Probably to avoid stepping all over Medal of Generics toes.

*grumble grumble*

How is CryEngine 3 ever supposed to take off if the flagship game never comes out?

Probably to avoid competition with Black Ops. Seems the Call of Duty series turns the fall into a wasteland for shooters. Sucks though, I was really looking forward to Crysis 2 after beating the first one a month ago.

This. For some reason I thought it was fall of next year.

Dear Santa,

It looks like this xmas gaming season is going to start turning out like last xmas season when most of the big games come out early in the new year. Can we just move Xmas to Feb / March please?

Thanks

At this point I had pretty much assumed all games this year were pushed back to Q1 2011. It's easier that way.

I'm almost positive this is what happened because they were faking the console version at E3.
I'm smiling, because I just wait for somebody to prove that they did. I never believed for one second those xbox buttons that flashed on the screen where real.

Yeah that freaking blows, it was the one FPS game I was looking forward to.

Not only that but looking at there release list, I have a very hard time believing they are going to launch that many big games all at once.

Exactly. I was hoping this holiday season wouldn't be another wasteland like last year, but it's already looking pretty slim. I know "wasteland" is overstating things, but compared to previous years, the 2009 and 2010 holiday lineups were/are disappointing.

I'd rather see it get a spotlight instead of being compared to Reach and Black Ops.

Hopefully they can layer on more polish with the time instead of just shelving it.

I was watching Crytek's demo of the "360" version on IGN during E3, and the game crashed to a desktop. First thing I thought was whooops...

*edit* Nirolak is too fast dammit. :)

How can someone say that when we got Metroid Other M, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Halo Reach, GT5, CoD Black Ops, Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep, and The Third Birthday?

There are a ton of games coming out this fall, 2 of which are probably going to be among the highest rated and sold games when the gen comes to a close.

Q1 is the new Q4.

It's gonna be pretty ironic if Rage ends up looking better than Crysis 2 on the consoles.

Damn, Another one gets delayed. There's been like 6 high profile shooters that have been delayed already to 2011.

Good. For me personally, I got a backlog I want to tackle.

Too bad for those who were eager for this. Not that I am not excited for Crysis 3, I am, Crysis was perhaps the best fps ever, I just don't mind waiting.

Great idea to rush out Shift 2. I'm sure everyone will give them the benefit of the doubt after how flawless the original was.

Which ones? The ones that are generic, shitty cash-cows?

I could have sworn this was announced as a Q1 2011 title anyway, so no disappointment here :lol

Regardles so what you think of their quality, to write of Halo Reach and Call of Duty is just sheer stupidty.

The simple fact is Not every game can sell big numbers, and when you have mulitple millions of people running to buy Halo and CoD it just reduces your own chances to sell, unless you are the marketing people for Blacksite Area 51.

Not only that but they will be well loved by most everyone, so trying to say they are generic peices of shit is pointless. This coming from a guy that doesn't like either Halo or CoD.

So it's going to go up against Killzone 3 and Gears 3.

Good thinking EA.
If they're smart, it'll be before those two. Like, a month before.

crysis 2 enemies remind me of the conduit's wii FPS enemies :lol
but in HD

anyways, Killzone 3 was much more interesting than what I've personally seen of crysis 2. I'm sure crysis 2 in PC will look great but the console version will get smacked by KZ3.

Crysis 2 on a beefy pc is so going to wipe the floor with that game.
That's nice. But Crytek need this game to be a hit how else will they convince other developers to use their engine.
