2014, A Disappointing Year Of Delays
I’m not gonna say that 2014 hasn’t been a good year for games, but I won’t argue against it either. While we got to see a lot of cool shiz at E3 it also brought a lot of bad news preceding and during, with almost every major title deayed to 2015. Following, are in no particular order, the games we wont get to see till next year.
Having entered development in 2012, Battlefield Hardline is set for release in March 2015. On the bright side, people got access to the game this year, as their public beta went live last month and concluded on June 26th 2014.
Evolve, the co-op FPS by 2K games was previously to be released late 2014. The promising sci-fi game soon shifted its release date to 10th February 2015.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
Initially set for a Fall 2014 release, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has also been relegated to February 2015, to be released on the 24th. Fans of the RPG series based on novels of the same name definitely aren’t happy about having to wait for what is being promised to be an RPG with an open world larger than any played before.
Tom Clancy’s The Division
Ubisoft’s third-person shooter, Tom Clancy’s The Division, utilizes their new snowdrop engine and promises some kick-ass graphics. The single player/MMO has been delayed to an indefinite date in 2015.
Batman: Arkham Knight
Originaly scheduled to be released on October 14th 2014, Batman: Arkham Knight has been delayed to a date yet to be announced in 2015.
Dying Light, a post-apocalyptic setting zombie game by Techland started off as a Dead Island sequel but morphed into a stand-alone game during the early stages of development. The survival horror game with heavy RPG elements stands to be released in February 2015.
The good news is that February 2015 is going to be an epic month full of releases with Battlefield Hardline, The Order: 1886, Evolve, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Batman: Arkham Knight and Dying Light all releasing in the same month.
