Ubisoft has commented on the reasons behind today’s delay of Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, explaining that the upcoming third-person shooter has been pushed back to FY2012 "to make the game the best it possibly can be".
"Ghost Recon: Future Soldier is being delayed until our next fiscal year", said Ubisoft’s Community Developer Kimi Matsuzaki, speaking on Ubisoft’s forums.
"We are working to make the game the best it possibly can be, and we’re taking this extra time to do just that.
"You haven’t heard much from us lately because we’ve been hard at work improving the game, and we’ll share new details with you soon. The GRFS beta is still in the plan, and it will be happening closer to the new release date."
Earlier today, Ubisoft announced that Ghost Recon: Future Soldier had been delayed from Q4 FY2011 to FY2012, meaning the shooter won’t launch until at least April 2011.
The beta is still set to be exclusive to Xbox 360 and to owners of Splinter Cell: Conviction.
Driver San Francisco was also pushed back to the same window, though no explanation has been given for its delay.
Ghost Recon: Future Soldier is currently in development at Ubisoft Montreal for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, DS and PSP.
