Raven Software's snazzy looking time-shifting first-person shooter Singularity won't be arriving this Fall, as previously planned by publisher Activision. Why? Because Modern Warfare 2 is also coming out this Fall and Singularity would only get lost in the din.
Activision has today opened a time portal for Singularity, moving it to Q1 2010, well out of range of Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2. Activision explains!
"The level of excitement for Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2 coming out of E3 well exceeded our expectations and therefore we have decided to move Raven's upcoming sci-fi first person action title, Singularity, from 2009 to Q1 2010," said an Activision spokesperson. "We believe that the March quarter will provide a better opportunity to establish the new cutting-edge action IP as a 'must-have' title and clears the way for Modern Warfare 2 to dominate this holiday season."
Wow. So we're calling selling an estimated 11 million copies of your game dominating the holiday season now? Hmph!
