Oh hey, it's like 2012 all over again and a bunch of games people are into are being delayed into the next year.

2014 the year where everybody acts like people who never experienced a game being delayed

Or the first year of the Nintendo 64 releases.

That means I get to delay my PS4 purchase, my wallet is happy!

Edited by NeoZeon

So I'm gonna go cancel my preorder then. Could really use that cash back to be honest.

Edited by thebunnyhunter

Man I was really excited to play this with my friends, we love playing L4D versus and while not entirely the same it definitly seems to capture similar feelings.

Edited by Lausebub

I don't really mind if the spread is a bit better. Even with all those delays, fall is looking pretty good. I could see it being a problem if I only had a PS4 or something.

"Those Destiny pre-orders look pretty good."

"Yeah."

"Think it'll still be popular by October?"

"Probably, yeah. They've got that DLC stuff coming."

"How's our game looking?"

Oh well, now I guess I'll have to settle for Far Cry, Dragon Age, WWE 2k15, Madden/Sports, Shadow of Mordor, Halo Remakes, Destiny, Super Smash Bros, Assassin's Creed Unity, Alien, Civilization: Beyond Earth, Advanced Warfare, The Evil Within, Sunset Overdrive, and a huge number of Digital games.

People saying that there are no games this year are crazy people.

Far Cry, Mordor, Civ, and Sunset seem like the only good games out of those. Also 14 games over 4 months (which are usually packed) isn't a whole lot.

@imoverthewholezombiething: Those are my exact concerns as well. It bums me out because I know I wouldn't be able to synch up with my friends to play and the game doesn't seem like it would be a good experience with randos online. Idk if I'll bother playing at all.

Posted by MikeFerrari7

I played the alpha, it was a blast, but it definitely needs work. I think the delay is for the best, but again, I'm basing this off an alpha so....

Posted by Random45

I'll be honest, I haven't heard of this game until this article. Looks interesting though.

Title should be "Take-Two Delays Evolution Until February".

Posted by Cybexx

Well if Johnathan Blow can ship The Witness this year his remaining competition on PS4 is laughable or annualized.

No one cares about Driveclub, it had its chance to stand out as a launch game and now that opportunity has blown past. It is nice that they are releasing Little Big Planet 3 but it feels almost more like a means to support the ongoing DLC for that franchise. Alien: Isolation looks cool but it feels like that game is one delayed milestone away from a 2015 delay. Dragon Age: Inquisition looks like it will ship (otherwise it would have been delayed further) so with good reviews it could clean up.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Assassin's Creed: Unity will ship, because they have to, and they will be big but they are a week apart from each other. If The Witness and Galak-Z can ship in September or October they will get the premium spots in the Featured section and if the early word is anything to go by then they will be mighty appealing for PS4 owners.

Speaking as a poor person, I'm glad to have more time to save up. Except that The Witcher and like 3 other games are coming in February.

Posted by Jackel2072

The last of us remaster, GTA V and halo the master chief collection are the games I'm most looking forward to this year. Which is maybe kind of sad because I played all of them before...

Edited by sl1ppyfist

Thanks guys, that's a $64.57 I had on your game that I can now spend on something that will actually come out.

I almost paid for that shit!

February for this game is a fucking pipe dream.

Posted by pancakehumper

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!! The alpha over the weekend was incredible. This is terrible news :(

Posted by Branthog

Fine with me. I was planning to buy it at launch, but I really doubt I'll play the game much. A game that requires you to co-operate with three other strangers against a powerful fifth? I just see a long of shouting and racist/homophobic language hurled around (when anyone actually has mics on the other end, that is).

Posted by Cloudunderfire

Oh well, more time for driveclub and assassins creed.

Edited by ripelivejam

How do you guys play so many games

Posted by JStaunton

amount? or number?

Of course....

@dberg said:

I thought this was a Valve game. ...why did I think this was a Valve game? I'm confused.

Because it didn't have a 3 in the title?

Actually it's more likely because the game is from the people that made Left 4 Dead.

There goes my GOTY

Posted by warxsnake

Good. The alpha had a lot of issues. The biggest being overall pacing of the game. I felt like I spent more time in the menus.

@theveej said:

well that halo collection looks very exciting now (honestly no joking, AC:Unity and Halo Collection are the only games im excited about)........ thank god I have an okay PC for some steam games

Yeah, same here.

Posted by Kagone

Well that just ruined my day :(

Posted by Dan_CiTi

Good. If this game doesn't come out properly, it would be pretty trash because it revolves around being well paced, well balanced, stable, and continually engaging. Hopefully they hit the nail on the head.

Posted by JuggaloAcidman

This winter is going to be fucking boring!

Posted by Dixavd

Maybe with the extra time they can figure out a way to advertise/talk about this game that doesn't leave me forgetting about it a day afterwards (seriously, every time that Evolve is mentioned I have to look up what it is again).

Posted by Fattony12000

Destiny will keep me busy till then!

Edited by Deathpooky

With this month's PS+ offerings and the Square sale there, my PS3 is going to be getting a lot more time than anything else for the coming months.

Posted by Demoskinos

@turboman: And yet I have zero interest in just about everything you listed. Straight up 2014 has been a pretty damn mediocre year

Sorry, my intention had not been to be a dick! :(

I merely tried to point out the differences between those games, i felt obliged to do so after you said that "gotta play it to get it" part.

And my 200+ steam backlog remains unchallenged :'(

Every time you look at that backlog and don't play anything, another game gets delayed to 2015. All of this is your fault.

@dberg: probably because turtle rock studios did left 4 dead.

No man, remember in 2012 they were saying how there weren't many games coming out and there were just slapdash spinoffs like God of War: Ascension and Gears of War: Judgment and Batman: Arkham Origins because they were saving all their new and good ideas for the new consoles? Remember how it was just the old consoles holding them back from these amazing new games? Man, that sucked. Thank God those new consoles came out almost a year ago, because we've been flooded with those new franchises and bold new ideas that the gaming industry had been holding back at the end of last generation.

Oh, and nobody wants to play their old games on their new consoles. Backwards compatibility is really backwards, hahahahaha. What people REALLY want is to pay $40-60 dollars to replay those games, slightly uprezzed, on their new consoles.

FUCK ALL VIDEO GAMES

It's cool man :)

Live and let live.

It's right now (and the last 6 weeks) that needs games... who cares if we are 'one less' in October.

They're still plenty of games to play this Autumn, probably too many really. It's going to be a competitive Christmas this year.

Posted by Anomareh

Nobody wanted the version of this game that would have came out in October. Game would have vanished faster than Titanfall.

Posted by bennym6

If you think video games are fucked you're stupid. REMEMBER ALL THOSE BAD-ASS GAMES THAT CAME OUT IN 2006? No because there were like two. This shit takes time, dummies.

Guess the game needed more time to evolve.

Boom!

Lock down the comments, this guy won.

Why are these comments not locked yet?

Posted by Schlorgan

I was in the alpha for this game and it seemed kind of rough. It's probably for the best.

@patrickklepek Giantbomb needs a "most disappointing delay" category during this years Game of the Year Awards.

  • Batman: Arkham Knight
  • Evolve
  • Halo 5
  • The Witcher 3
  • The Order: 1886
  • Quantum Break
  • Dying Light
  • The Division
  • Mad Max

I feel like I'm missing some still...

Halo 5 was never a 2014 game, and games like The Order and The Division never had release dates and seemed very likely to miss 2014.

Halo 5 clearly was intended to be a 2014 game, the just never technically said it. They backtracked/weasled out of it this year, but they were clearly full of shit. No one believes for a minute they planned to wait 2 years from the release of their new console until releasing a sequel for their only relevant franchise.

So maybe you can, technically, keep it off a 2014 list... but we know.

Luckily got into the alpha. Controlled great, looked great, ran around 60 fps on my pc (which is solid but not a powerhouse). The one issue I couldn't shake was the sense of "is this all the game is"? Granted this is just an alpha and there could be many more game modes I've yet to read about or they have yet to announce but for now, I worry this will be Titanfall all over again. Fun for a few days then I'm simply pretty much done with it.
