Unconfirmed: Alpha Protocol Delayed Again

Postby GameBanshee News » Sat Sep 26, 2009 11:14 am

It's possible that GameStop is privy to another unannounced delay for Alpha Protocol, as they've now <a href="http://www.gamestop.com/Catalog/ProductDetails.aspx?product_id=70856">listed the game</a> as having a ship date of June 1st, 2010. To add more fuel to the fire, <a href="http://www.amazon.ca/Sega-Of-America-Inc-85228/dp/B0016G88RO/">Amazon.ca</a> has also pushed the game back, though their estimation is June 30th, 2010.<br><br>Hmm. Maybe <a href="/news/static/EkVFyZyklunDvkpqDR.php">the leaked SCEA document</a> caused some internal turmoil?<br><br>Thanks, Wilhelm.

What was the original release date?

EDIT: Found the answer online. Feel free to disregard my initial question.

Hmm. Well, if they're spending the time to fix issues and bugs in the game, then I suppose its better than releasing it in an unfinished state. Still though, pushed back until next June?

Yeah, pushing the game back by more than half a year seems pretty telling to me. It certainly gives them enough time to work on a DLC or two for the game too. :p

From October to June of next year? That's pretty far. I'd probably assume that it could also be done to avoid the big titles released soon such as Dragon Age and Modern Warfare 2 to name a few. Not to mention some titles targeting early 2010 (e.g. Alan Wake and Singularity).
''They say truth is the first casualty of war. But who defines what's true? Truth is just a matter of perspective. The duty of every soldier is to protect the innocent, and sometimes that means preserving the lie of good and evil, that war isn't just natural selection played out on a grand scale. The only truth I found is that the world we live in is a giant tinderbox. All it takes...is someone to light the match" - Captain Price
