Black Hawk Down Xbox delayed

Xbox Live options need sprucing up apparently.

NovaLogic has delayed the release of the Xbox version of Delta Force - Black Hawk Down in order to sharpen up the Xbox Live experience, the publisher announced late last week. The Xbox title, ported by Climax, is now due out in Q1 2005.

"The new ship date allows for an extended development period, which gives us the opportunity to really focus on the Xbox Live features planned for the title," according to Lee Milligan, President of NovaLogic.

"We are also working on a few other features, exclusive to the game, which could make Delta Force - Black Hawk Down one of the best and most talked about Xbox Live titles of 2005."

It's certainly going to need something. The PC original, released in March of 2003, didn't exactly set the world on fire, resorting for the most part to on-rails shoot-'em-up sections and tackling a seemingly endless stream of totally hopeless enemies.
