360 GRAW gold, PS2 version MIA

Next-gen, Xbox editions of Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter set for March 9 ship, PC slated for May...but is it still coming to Sony's current-gen console?

When the first Xbox 360 games were revealed last May, few generated as much excitement as Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter. Sporting graphics that look far slicker than many of its next-generation siblings, the game takes the popular tactical combat series even farther into the near future. Besides sporting the high-tech Integrated Warfighter System (IWS) heads-up interface, the game contains plenty of in-game equipment based on technology still being developed by the US military, such as the OICW (Objective Individual Combat Weapon). Gameplay-wise, the 360 GRAW will take full advantage of Xbox Live, allowing players to use coordinate multiplayer attacks via its integrated voice-over IP functionality.

Now, nearly 10 months after it was first unveiled, Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter has gone gold for the Xbox 360. Ubisoft confirmed today that the game has been sent to the factory, and will ship worldwide on March 9--next Thursday. It will simultaneously ship on the current-generation Xbox in the US, but will come a week later in Europe.

However, today's news was not as good for PC Gamers. Originally slated for a March 30 release, the Windows version of the game now won't arrive until May, the same month as the annual E3 gaming expo. According to a statement from Ubisoft, the delay will give "developers more time to put the finishing touches on the game and make it the best possible PC gaming experience."

But while Ubisoft was forthcoming about three versions of Advanced Warfighter, it was curiously tight-lipped about the status of the game on one platform--the PlayStation 2. Not only is the console unmentioned in the announcement release, the PS2 logo has disappeared from the bottom of the game's official Web site--much like the GameCube logo did in December. However, as of press time, reps for the publisher had not responded to requests for comment on either version's status.
