Sly 4 delayed again

#1 Edited by impartialgecko (1531 posts) -

Sly 4 is being delayed yet again guys. Remember when this game was coming out in Q1 this year? "Coming early 2013" according to this Gamescom trailer.

I don't know whether anyone has noticed but this entire generation's last gasp is being let out in "Early 2013". How well do you think any of these B-tier games like Sly are going to do if they're being released in the same time frame as Bioshock Infinite and Gears of War Judgment and every other game delayed out of this year's holiday season? I seem to remember this game looking a-okay for release until that Vita version was announced.

This was so disappointing to hear :( Yeah, February seems too crowded for Sly to fit in it it . Wouldn't surprise me if it would be pushed back one more time to April - June . But hey , more time to perfect the game I guess . It really does look awesome , and there isn't one game I'd want to play more than Sly 4 . I wish more people would notice this game , or at least comment more on the forums about it ...

But I really wish they would say why it got pushed.

I am looking forward to this game but I can deal with the wait. I really enjoyed the PS2 trilogy and there definitely has been a noticeable lack of 3D platformers this generation.

Got to be the Vita port holding things up. Everything was slated for early this year until the Vita version was announced and then it was pushed to November (which would actually have helped it given how the PS3 doesn't have much for the holidays) and then from November to early 2013.

I haven't had much interest in or paid much attention to this game, but I played Sly 2 and thought it was really good, surprisingly so in a few areas, so while I'm not immediately interested I'm willing to give it a chance.

Thought it was already out. Classic.

It was announced for a fall release before the Vita version was revealed, actually. My guess is they thought Q1 2013 would be a little lighter. Might be that they're going for a January release. None of the other big stuff in that quarter is coming out then, yeah?

@C_Rakestraw: January is usually Capcom or EA's month but I don't think anything that's coming out in early 2013 has a date yet. Keep in mind that "Early 2013" means anytime between January 1st and E3.

True. Still, would probably be one of the better times to get the game out. Nice and quiet for the most part, I believe.
