Well, it most certainly has been pushed back. Haze, the first-person shooter for PS3 developed by Free Radical (Time Splitters), has been pushed back to April this year, or even beyond. Originally slated for a December 2007 release, it was expected the game would hit in the first quarter of 2008, however, Ubisoft has said the game may be as far away as April, or beyond.
"Haze has been delayed as the financial situation allowed it," explained Ubisoft Australia PR and Promotions Manager, Chad Acers. "So we decided to take additional time and polish it [the game]."
The delay has come about in the wake of Ubisoft's most recent financial reports that show massive growth over their margins this time last year, even beyond their Q3 07-08 projections, suggesting there's no real need for Haze to arrive just yet. Here's hoping the added time gives this purported PS3 exclusive a real chance to shine.
