PS3 developer Zipper Interactive has promised gamers the recently delayed SOCOM 4 will be worth the wait.
Zipper confirmed yesterday that the shooter, which is PlayStation Move compatible, will be released next year.
"While we're certainly aware that you've been looking forward to playing SOCOM 4 this year, we don't want to take any shortcuts," Zipper's senior community manager Jeremy Dunham wrote on the game's official website.
"Instead, we want to deliver the best and most immersive SOCOM game we possibly can and we're going to use our extra time to do just that.
"On behalf of everyone here at Zipper Interactive, we want to thank you for being patient and thank you for sticking with us - it will be worth the wait."
Ellie interviewed European SOCOM producer Elliott Martin back in April and discovered all sorts of interesting gubbins about the military shooter. Trailer's below.
