EA recently announced its latest set of results for the third quarter of its financial year ending December 2012 and while the publisher revealed bits of exciting, disturbing and impressive news, it appears as though the busy March 2013 period has become less packed thanks to the delay of at least one game.
The four-player co-operative third-person shooter from Insomniac Games, Fuse, has been delayed past its original release window of March 2013 into the second quarter of the year (which could mean any time from April to June).
Reasons cited for the delay of Fuse include the usual excuses of “polishing” and, it follows, “extra work” on the game ahead of its release.
EA already has at least three important games launching in March, with SimCity, Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 all releasing in one month, so it makes sense to give Fuse some room, especially when it will have titles like Gears of War: Judgment, Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite and The Walking Dead from Activision to contend with.
Are you still looking forward to Fuse? Do you think the game’s delay is a good idea or would you have liked to see it out sooner rather than later?
