I reported last week that Metro: Last Light was going to be delayed and now comes news that Company of Heroes 2, another former THQ property, will be pushed back to June. Producer Greg Williams says the delay is a means of making sure they deliver a “high quality sequel the fans deserve”, which, as far as I’m concerned, is a perfectly acceptable excuse.
If I have a message for video game publishers/developers it’s this: take as much time as you need, bros! There’s no reason to rush perfection and gamers will appreciate the extra polish that comes with extended development cycles. Besides, we have more than enough games to tide us over until then.
