Ghost Recon: Future Soldier delayed

Out early 2012.

Third-person shooter Ghost Recon: Future Soldier has been delayed again.

Future Soldier was down for launch during publisher Ubisoft's 2011/12 financial year – between now and March 2012.

Yesterday Ubisoft said the game will now launch during its fiscal fourth quarter for 2012, or the first three months of calendar 2012.

CEO Yves Guillemot blamed the delay on a crowded holiday release schedule packed with the likes of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Ubisoft's own Assassin's Creed: Revelations.

It is the latest in a string of delays to the game.

It was at one point due for release in the autumn 2010.

Eurogamer last saw the game in April last year. "This latest instalment in the Ghost Recon series may be faster and flashier than its measured, belly-crawling predecessors, but its military hardware is so new and so different that there's no way a whole new clutch and concept of tactics won't spin out of it," wrote Alec Meer in Eurogamer's.
