Ghost Recon: AW Delayed Till Feb 06

Today Ubisoft announced that it has decided to devote additional time to perfect the next installment in its award-winning squad-based military shooter, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter. The game will launch worldwide for the Xbox 360 in February 2006. The additional time devoted to the development of this title will allow Ubisoft to offer gamers the best episode ever of the award-winning Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon franchise and will enable the game’s development teams to optimize the application of Xbox 360 technology. The delay of the release date will not impact Ubisoft’s revenue forecasts for the fiscal year.

At the X05 event in Amsterdam earlier this week, Ubisoft astounded attendees with playable single- and multi-player demonstrations of the thrilling new title. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter™ was extremely well received by event participants, and Ubisoft expects the game to quickly become a blockbuster title.

In Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, players will be able to truly immerse themselves as soldiers of the future,” said Tony Kee, vice president of marketing at Ubisoft North America. “This game will continue the tradition of setting the bar for intense multiplayer action and cutting-edge technology. X05 attendees experienced the stunning results of the work Ubisoft’s award-winning studios have done in perfecting innovative multiplayer content and taking advantage of next-generation capabilities.”
