Dark Void, if you’re not familiar with it, will be awesome. Okay, that might be a bit much, but it stands to be really cool. Think Rocketman but with guns and a cover system.
The title, developed by a studio comprised of members from Fasa Studios, Microsoft and the Coraline film studio, Will Vinton Studio, was set to be released this September. Much like Modern Warfare 2 and Halo 3: ODST, Capcom is delaying the title’s release to add some polish and avoid the “crowded fall game season”.
This is tremendously disappointing. The title might not be as promoted as largely as titles like Bioshock 2 or Halo 3 ODST but it looks like it could gain a lot of ground if it does well through word of mouth. Delaying a game for more polish is understandable, but the crowded fall game season is hardly crowded at this point as it was last year.
During this time I hope Capcom starts putting more effort into advertising the title. If they don’t it might turn up as a cult release rather than a huge commercial release.
