graw2 pc release date


Recommended Posts

Yeah i remember, Nov 05', then two or three more delays. I see a pattern as well.

...and still no official word on "PC"-anything on the official Ghost Recon2 Website. "Coming soon..." is the most I can find, and this with only 19 days left before a presumed title launch?

The evidence of a delay, or should I say the lack of support for a March 30 release date, is becoming a bit too much to ignore. Ubi could solve all the whispers by saying something... ANYTHING... official to the PC crowd. I'm not holding my breath.

Don't worry, it's not delayed. Ubisoft is just lazy when it comes to marketing their pc versions of games lately. There was virtually no info on RSV PC either when it was coming out, but it did end up coming out on time. I predict the same situation is happening for GRAW2 PC. Also, the Ubisoft France website does have info for the pc version. It has the pictures that have been released so far and also contains the system specs for the pc version. That on top of the fact that Nvidia has released a GPU driver that fixes an issue with GRAW2 on Vista adds to the growing evidence that the game is NOT delayed and will be released on time. We will be playing some GHOST RECON Advanced Warfighter 2 at the end of the month. With emphasis on GHOST RECON in response to your sig that I disagree with, but that's just me.

This is my guess but the outlets now showing a June release date must represent a HUGE percentage of all retail and online purchase locations. The two locations I could find that show a March release represent a pretty small fraction... CompUSA is busy closing more than half their retail stores in the States and CD Universe is a website I had never heard of until I went on this journey to find sales outlets with any kind of link for GRAW2.

Did I find all potential outlets to purchase GRAW2? Of course not. I'm sure there are plenty more. Did I find those that probably account for more than 80% of all purchases? I think so. Could one of those "June" release date outlets be wrong? Yep. Could ALL of them be wrong? Sure, but the odds that so many of them all got bogus information is very small. And Wal-Mart is so big they generally work directly with the publishers to get dates.

Also, the French UBI website shows "spring 2007" for release of GRAW2... in my mind that's a bit vague since they're supposedly 18 days away from launch. Spring Equinox happens on March 21 but Summer Solstice is on June 21... that gives Ubi a fairly large timespan to consider "Spring 2007" for a shipping date.

Wow, nice round up Kretzj, thanks.

I can't think why Europe would get it 3 months ahead of the US/Canada, so my money's on a new release date of June, and Ubi Press Release staff are still trying to figure out how to word the delay announcement. :hmm:

Unfortunately Rocky, I agree with you. Right now they're enjoying positive press on the 360 launch. When (my opinion) they announce the PC delay that positive will turn to neutral, or worse.

Also, in my quest for data this morning I found several articles confirming the PS3 version of GRAW2 is now June, 2007... that was confirmed by Ubi. Here are two:

GRAW2 PS3 Delay Link #1 (rumor)

GRAW2 PS3 Delay Link #2 (apparently confirmed)

I am still optimistic. :shifty: Only one here(at time of writing) who really knows is GRIN Bumbi but he apparently has become mute. <_<

I, too am worried about GRiN's silence, but I do understand the legal nature of that silence. They can't speak about it... they're unfortunately tied to Ubi, who apparently is running pretty low on interest for the PC gaming community of late.

Since when has the June release date of the PS3 version been a rumor? From what read from Ubisoft, they said a long time ago that 360 and pc version would come out first with psp and ps3 version coming June. Hell, even RSV isn't out on PS3 yet, and guess when it's coming out. In June.

Those articles were from back in late January, nothing new there that I see :)

I was simply pointing out those facts on the PS3 platform... I wasn't intending to draw comparisons to the PC version.

I think my research this morning into release dates from retail and online vendors point pretty strongly toward a June PC release without any further support required.

I don't buy that for the reasons that I stated. The fact is that the UBI UK store says the end of the month and that is the only official date you can trust. All the stores post any date they can find for a product to the best of there abilities. I think that the stores first messed up the original date for the pc version by saying it would be released on the 6th and then found out they were wrong and looked for any other date associated with GRAW 2. Bang, then they find the PS3 release date and decide that is the pc release date. That's just my theory of course. ;) Stores often get release dates horribly wrong. Grin apparently loves to watch our anxiety over this issue as they always lurk in this thread but never throw us a bone or even the slightest hint. :angry:

First you say Ubi is lazy about updating web sites, now you rely on a Ubi website for the date? The US UBI store doesn't even HAVE a link for the PC version.

A hint would most likely be against the NDA as well. UBI is the only source that such info could come from. So I guess checking out the UBI forum and asking questions there is the only possible way to get any hint or answer.

I know. I don't so much blame them as dislike that they log in with their member accounts and let us know that they are in the thread, but know that they can't respond. :wall:

How about some official news on when it will be released? What is the major problem there?

I don't think they would just up and change it for no reason, but stranger things have happened. Still enjoying GRAW 1 MP everynight, so its not so terrible if it is delayed.

If it comes earlier, I'll be pleasantly surprised.

Cell, I hope to god all of the UK sites are right and that it comes out late March... I don't think I can handle another GRAW game like the other night w/ you guys :P

Can't wait to see the ladders in GRAW2 like they were in GRAW!!! Good times!

Yeah...always good to see you guys around... honestly its nice to play on some servers that run GL's (attackforcez, bda), I play on other servers that don't run gl's, and are usually populated, and they lag way worse than the servers with the gl's, and the games aren't as fun...way more run and gun. We'll be shooting it up till the release of GRAW 2. We are always on our TS server when we play...you guys should hop on. You can access it through our website...there is a link on the top right. See you on the bf.

Always nice to see some quality clan players out there, I just hope we'd be in sufficient numbers to get some no respawn (or possibly 1 respawn) fungames going regularly...I'm a little tired of the current multiple- or unlim. respawn fungames...

PS. Do you really mean "like they were in GRAW"? Matching hardly ever began in GRAW although the few matches that occured was great fun, or did you mean [GR]?

Also, Clone, we are ready to scrim 5vs 5 or so any evening, just so you know

If the delay is for US only maybe somthing to do with Blood and gore levels to be higher for the US market,

lol I expect it would read somthing like THIS.

In short: "To achieve better quality and deliver all the features we wanted to have in the game,"

Thats if it has been delayed.
