So we have some good news and some bad news.
First the bad news – Tom Clancy‘s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, which was set for a March 2012 release on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, has been pushed back to 25 May 2012, because the development team decided they needed a little more time.
Ubisoft have confirmed this new date for local release.
This is bad news because we’re actually looking forward to this, and because it messed up my Q1 2012 release list.
On to the good news then – remember how Ubisoft were going to punish naughty PC gamer pirates by not releasing Future Soldier on the platform? Well development director, Adrien Lacey, has confirmed that it will in fact be making its way to PC.
If you’re not one of the PC gamers who jumped on the “boycott Ubisoft” bandwagon, then you can add another title to the list of games you can look forward to in 2012, even though it will be coming out some time after the console counterparts, according to Ubisoft.
Also announced: plans to launch a beta for the game around April 2012 (for PS3 and Xbox 360), so everyone can get a feel for the multiplayer and hopefully forget all that silly DRM/piracy nonsense, which is soooo 2011.
