Okay, there's bad news, and there's really bad news. The bad news is that Galleon, Toby Gard's swash-buckling adventure for Xbox, Cube and PC has slipped until 2003. We sort of anticipated this, remarking as much last week when publisher Virgin assured us of a pre-Christmas release. The really bad news is that somewhere along the way the PC version has slipped overboard, and Virgin now have no firm plans to release it, although they may double back on themselves at some point in the future.
It seems that whenever we get within boarding distance of captain Rhama Sabrier's galleon the Endeavour, the pair ease off towards the horizon again. Hopefully Virgin will actually release it during Q1 2003, its new release estimate. We'll be among the first to set sail when they do.
