SEGA and Obsidian Entertainment have finally released a statement confirming that Alpha Protocol has been pushed back until Spring of 2010.
"Alpha Protocol is a new take on the RPG genre and from day one the team has been working to make Alpha Protocol a truly unique game for players to experience." says Obsidian boss, Feargus Urquhart. Take your time and get it right, guys. There are quite a few other RPGs to enjoy until then.
"We're very happy that Sega has made the decision to hold back the shipment of the game in order to give it the best chance at becoming the publishing success that we at Obsidian and our partners at Sega are striving for".
"Alpha Protocol has been a very promising title since the beginning of the development cycle." Added Sega Europe MD, Alan Pritchard. "By pushing Alpha Protocol to Spring 2010, we can ensure that the game will be released in the best commercial release window possible and will also receive the focus this true AAA titles deserves."
