So everything is getting pushed into 2013. This was my most anticipated game of the year but it ain't coming this year. Fucking 2012...
Yeah that sucks so what's left for the later half of the year? I think the only 2 big games I'm excited about are Resident Evil 6 and Assassin's Creed III I just looked at the list of games that where pushed to last year Tomb Raider , DmC, Bioshock Infinite and now The Last of Us kinda surprised that Dishonored hasn't been pushed back , but I guess is better that way DOA5 , Persona 4 Arena and Tekken Tag T2 are coming this year so there's still some choices but the ones I look foward the most are still far away.
Weeell.... I'm not entirely surprised, really. It still sucks, and that once crowded Autumn season appears to be getting slimmer and slimmer. There's still Borderlands 2 in September, and RE6, AC3 along with Hitman Absolution - which still makes for a solid amount of gamage during those months. But I have to admit, 2012 overall isn't looking quite as outstanding as was it once was a few months back. 2013 on the other hand is increasingly starting to look stupendously awesome.
Don't know why people are surprised by this.
It's June already. This is a game that has generated a lot of hype for itself. If it were gonna come out this year we would have
a) got a release date by now, no matter how tentative and/or
b) got substantial gameplay footage that doesn't read like a PR/tech demo.
There are a bunch of people who are hoping the Tomb raider reboot comes out at the end of the year and for the same reasons i'm baffled.
@Master_Funk: If AC3 wraps up the Desmond story, it's in with a shout. Borderlands 2 and Halo 4 look really solid too though.
And of course Diablo III. I'm going to assume the GOTY discussions will tie closely between Diablo III and Assassin's Creed III. Though there's always the chance that we'll have this years 'Saints Row The Third' equivalent where a game will take them completely by surprise and will rise all the way to the GOTY debate.
There's still at least XCOM (Oct 9), Borderlands 2 (Sep 18), Assassins Creed 3 (Oct 30), Darksiders 2 (Aug 14), Hitman: Absolution (Nov 20), Torchlight 2 (?).
Also Spec Ops: The Line (Jun 26), Planetside 2(?), Halo 4 (Nov 6) and CoD: BLOPS2 (Nov 13).
Probably a few titles I've forgotten, but I'd hardly call it a wasteland.
I had a feeling hearing pretty much every Naughty Dog employee say they weren't ready to state a release date, automatically meant 2013. Sucks becuase other than Diablo 3, this year has been pretty empty. I have high hopes for AC3 and Hitman Absolution, but I was really looking forward to The Last of Us this winter break!
At some point developers and publishers will have to bite the bullet and realize that unless they release their games in the Summer or something, they will always have a good amount of competition in the first quarter or last quarter of the year.
Not surprised, just sad. I had still been hoping maybe it would come out this year. Resident Evil 6, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royal and Need for Speed: Most Wanted: A Criterion Game are still coming out though so I guess a push back is fine.
