If a recent change to Singularity's GameStop releases listing
is accurate, Activision's oft-delayed shooter will see another push down the 2010 calendar. Originally slated for release in 2009, Singularity
was delayed to March 2010 to help establish the game as a "must have" and distance it from Modern Warfare 2's
nuclear explosion -- mostly, the latter.
While a changed retailer listing is not confirmation of a delay, another bump may be absolutely necessary for Raven Software's title to have a shot at success (and Raven could use a lift
). When the original delay was announced
, Activision suggested
that the March release window provided "fewer competitive titles" for Singularity
to go up against. While Capcom
has made that statement slightly more believable, Activistion is still
, really wrong
. If Singularity's
new listed date of June 1, 2010 isn't what the publisher intends, perhaps
Activision should consider it.
