An Autumn 2014 release date for The Division has always been more wishful thinking than necessarily realistic, even given Ubisoft’s reasonable release date track record. Anyway, via EvAv, as described by a dev and quoted at GameReactor, The Division apparently has “very far to go”. As some people pointed out in the discussions over there, it could be just a disgruntled employee, but in truth, the rumor is too easy to believe. The Division has captured our imagination for good reason – it looks beautiful, and its gameplay promises rich, fresh RPG/FPS experiences spread over a gorgeously rendered New York. I don’t care what kind of awesome tools you have, that stuff takes time to create. I hope it won’t be delayed, but I am bracing myself for the blast of delayed release date announcement.
In other news, Turtle Rock Studios (the development team who actually made L4D, as opposed to the publishing company ::cough:: Valve ::cough:: that bought and modded it) announced that they are working on Evolve, a four player VS xenomorph game. This has the potential to be the game that Alien:Colonial Marines never was. Via EvAv.
