Bad news for trigger-happy gamers looking forward to the Xbox 360 version of Battlefield 2: Modern Combat - it's been delayed by a month, according to a post on the website of developer DICE.

The post reads: "The launch of Digital Illusions’ game Battlefield 2 Modern Combat for Xbox 360 will be in April 2006." So there you have it.

Presumably there's a little tweaking still to do, and the troops are probably going to need a little encouragement to step out into the fray again for a whole new audience. The plus side, of course, is that by the time the game does actually ship there will be bundles of Xbox 360s on the shelves - which means there's a much better chance of playing online against your friends and colleagues than some gobby, gun-obsessed 12-year old in Kentucky.

An exact launch date has yet to be confirmed, but we'll keep you posted.
