Just when you thought those Q1 delays
were over, SCEA comes in with a surprise
. The upcoming SOCOM Fireteam Bravo 3
for PSP will miss its original late November release
, and will instead come out on January 12th, 2010, two weeks
before Zipper deploys MAG
SCEA Senior Producer Mark Rogers says that developer Slant Six is not responsible for the delay and "development is on schedule." Instead, Rogers blames marketing, saying "some high value visual assets (screens and video) have only recently been made available to global marketing and we have decided to move the release and allow time to get the word out to everyone." So, although assets have been available since April
, marketing hasn't received them until "recently." We're not entirely sure how this makes sense, but the end result is clear: you'll be waiting longer for this game, as someone gets their act together.
