Urban Justice delayed to 2004

Sounds like one of Blair's speeches

SWAT fansite 10-David reports rather convincingly that SWAT: Urban Justice - the latest PC instalment in the series - has been delayed until '2004'. After having confirmed a winter 2003 delay, then seen UJ snubbed by Vivendi's German games and beer festival, and also having heard that UJ would not appear at E3, it now appears that it'll be an even longer wait for anything tangible - certainly it'll be a while before we get to bat away CD key requests for it.

10-David suggests that a switch to the Unreal engine, as rumoured since October, and the mass exodus of many of the developers could both have been deciding factors in the delay. It seems clear that the game has suffered a major setback though, despite reportedly coming quite close to completion. Another possible reason, 10-David speculates, is that Argonaut's SWAT: Global Strike Team for Xbox could be positioned to appear first at all costs - suggesting a deliberate marketing move by Sierra.

Either way, GST will likely be at E3, and Urban Justice will remain AWOL.
