EA may have dropped enough hints in its investor conference call this week to cater to every taste - from the Sims and SimCity to Road Rash, Rings and Black - but in the more immediate future the news was less positive, with both Crysis and Army of Two experiencing delays.
Crytek's first-person shooter Crysis - one of the most hotly tipped PC titles of the next 12 months - will now be released in the 12 months following the end of the present fiscal year. In other words, sometime from April onwards.
PS3 and 360 co-op curiosity Army of Two - in development at EA's Montreal studio - has also been moved back to the fiscal year beginning April 2007, although since it was always down for release in 2007 anyway it's probably not fair to describe it as a delay. Oh well. Call it karma.
