Write Ubisoft's GRAW2 PC Delayed Press Release


Recommended Posts

As shown here (thanks Kretzj), the majority of online retailers are now listing GRAW2 PC with a release date in June, rather than the current official Ubisoft date of the end of March.

Maybe Ubisoft need a hand writing the press release! :devil:

Here's how they worded the X360 delay last October

London, UK– OCTOBER 7, 2005 – Today Ubisoft, one of the world’s largest video game publishers, is pleased to announce that it has decided to devote additional time to perfect the next installment in its award-winning squad-based military shooter, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter™. The game will launch worldwide for the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft in February 2006. The additional time devoted to the development of this title will allow Ubisoft to offer gamers the best episode ever of the award-winning Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon franchise and will enable the game’s development teams to optimize the application of Xbox 360™ technology. The delay of the release date will not impact Ubisoft’s revenue forecasts for the fiscal year.

Ubisoft GRAW II Release Statment Dated 18th March 2007.

Ubisoft today announced a delay in the PC version of Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter II for the PC.

We appolagise for not letting the Fans know sooner but we have decided to spend more time on PC version of the game, we know the PC fans expect a great deal when it comes to this franchise, and we do not want to let them down.

To lighten this late news about the delay, we have posted some screen shots and a short video of the game.

Hows this.

Today Ubisoft announced that they have cancelled the PC version of GRAW2.

We did not want to disappoint the loyal Ghost Recon fans again, but we did not want to risk releasing a final product that did not meet their high expectations. With the launch of Ghost Recon Advanced Space Invaders planned for Winter 2007, significant human resources were needed to ensure the quality of the future instalment of the series, thus potentially jeopardizing the quality of either GRAW2 PC or Ghost Recon Advanced Space Invaders. Taking into account their close release dates, and the fact that we felt the fifth opus would be a much more satisfying and evolved gaming experience, we were forced to conclude that it was in the interest of gamers for us to cancel the PC version of GRAW2. But Ghost Recon Advanced Space Invaders on PC will hit shelves the fourth quarter of 2007, so the wait won't be long, and will definitely be worth it.

My 2 cents ( 1.2 pence at current exchange rates).

London, UK March 30, 2007 Today Ubisoft, one of the worlds largest video

game publishers, is pleased to announce that it has decided to release the first official

"patch" for GRAW II. This patch will fix all the forth coming bugs that may or may not b

included with the final release of the next instalment in its award-winning squad-based

military shooter, Tom Clancy™ Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter�„�.

The 851Mb patch will be available worldwide, and will precede the release of the game in

Europe, (American consumers will have to wait till June 2008 for the "US English" version

which will include additional material (such as a free 9mm) and will be supplied on

16 CD-ROM disks).

Additional time devoted to the development of this title will allow Ubisoft to offer gamers

the best episode of "patches" ever and will enable the game�€™s development teams to

optimize the application of PC and Xbox 360�„� technology. The delay of the release date

will not impact Ubisoft�€™s revenue forecasts for the fiscal year.

:rofl:

This is maybe what we’ll see on Monday?

London, UK– MARCH 19, 2007 – Today Ubisoft, one PC game publisher of the world in decline, is extremely pleased to announce that it has decided to devote additional time to perfect the next installment in its squad-based military shooter, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter™. The game will maybe launch worldwide for PC in June 2007, if at all, we don’t really know….

When aliens visited Ubisoft headquarters this February 2007 and played the Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2â„¢ Beta, they quickly left Earth because they realized the human race was not ready for contact*.

The additional time devoted to the development of this title will allow Ubisoft to offer gamers a full fledged multiplayer mode with optimized net code, openness, flexibility and variability in maps and gameplay, and updated injury model in the spirit of the game of the year 2001, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon, the Original.

London, UK– MARCH 19, 2007 – Today Ubisoft, one of the world’s last video game publishers, is pleased to announce that it has decided to screw its customers over ones more by cancelling its award-winning squad-based military shooter, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2™ for PC. The game could have launched worldwide for the PC in March 2007, but we decided not to. The time devoted to the development of this title has been a waste of time. The cancelation of the release will not impact Ubisoft’s revenue forecasts for the fiscal year. This due to the fact that customers is not important anymore. Announcing, delaying and cancelling is.

Thats how it should be...

April 1, 2007 - France

Today UbiSoft, a large, bloated software entertainment development and publishing house, announced that Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 for the PC platform, the ultra-modern, hot and sexy sequel to it's mind-numbingly successful Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter (note: 'successful' relates specifically to the Xbox360 release), will indeed ship on March 23rd.

"Any speculation on delays or product quality issues are indeed just that: speculation. We neither confirm nor deny that the product is suffering has any quality issues... or indeed that it's even finished... but indeed it will ship on March 23rd", said Pepe Lepew, UBISOFT Chairman and CEO.

When asked for confirmation, GRiN, the software development house contracted to write the PC platform version of Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter and the sequel, simply replied, "At this point in the development process we are simply asking GhostRecon.net to allow us the use of multiple accounts, since it would make our lives so much easier. The game? Oh yeah... I think we have it around here somewhere... wait a minute... let me see if I can find it..."

"The development process is expected to go "GOLD" by the middle of May, easily allowing GRiN and UBISOFT to meet the March 23rd deadline", continued Lepew.

When pressed for the exact YEAR of release, Lepew quickly gathered his papers and rushed out of the conference room, mumbling to himself about "rude games industry press journalists", and "quality takes time you know!"

from ubisoft Amsterdam, "smokin hot"

we are high on our new release date, and we hope you will dig this vibe we are on.

as of now we realize that the space suits only fit well with some good old dutch grass, so please go to amsterdam when ever you can.

we will only release this game when you get to the same level as our amsterdam employes. *too high to be recorded in any form of text.

as of a set date ??

well we don't know, who cares ??

all this shooting, we are cancelling it and renaming it so it can be rebuilt

we have asked grin to rename their engine, if not we need to find a developer who has the POT engine or atleast biofuel engine to run our new and improved passified ghost recon hippy dude as the follow up to our in hind sight too violent GR series.

this will feature not a medic. this will be in the psp and xbox360 series but not in the pc version, the pc folk will get a medicine man or as the dutch call it, the all night drugstore clerc, he will help you when your down, and no you will not regain all health but you will not frown or look depressed.

as for the draw distance, this will be taken care of.

we now have a valid excuse not to have it beyond 150 meters

how wwe will pull this of you will see but we figure that you already have a clue ....

oh yeah a date ??

what was that, date date ?? uh uh

oh here it is.

we messed up in the office, since our move from france to an amsterdam coffee shop we lost track of some paperwork, seemed as if it went up in smoke ....

but we got some here, it will be on 30th of feb next year.

odd date ?? well it wwas officially this year, but we could not find it on a calander.

so maybe next year.

peace out bro ! game on...

We are sorry but we have to delay the release of GRAW2 for PC. This is cause we have put so much GHOST back in the game that we have lost them. More info to come in next weeks.

Ubisoft would never say that they are sorry for the delay of GRAW 2 since they are not spending any money on the marketing(yet). And the money they gave for developing doesn't seem enough to give the game any attention.

But there are really some nice press releases here and the "Ghost Recon Advanced SpaceInvaders" is just AWESOME!

This one is being copied and pasted as we speak.

Nice.

You don't want me to write one. It may not be complimentary whatsoever and downright inflammatory.

Go for it man, do your thing.

This kinda takes me back to this statment.
