Prototype Delayed To 2009
Publisher Sierra Entertainment and developer Radical Entertainment have announced today that Prototype will be delayed to 2009 possibly making it a April 2009 release.
Sierra Entertainment and Radical Entertainment have made the decision to shift Prototype to launch in 2009.
Since its announcement, Prototype has been regarded by many as groundbreaking and taking the open-world genre in new directions, and in the simplest explanation possible, we need more time to deliver the game the team initially set out to create.“
There is some good news about this delay. Previous Radical said that multiplayer wasn’t going to be in Prototype but the delay could mean otherwise.
As we’ve stated previously, Prototype’s multiplayer development was never ‘off the table’ but rather under evaluation and on hold.
Now, with the updated 2009 timing, Prototype multiplayer is still on the table for evaluation, and further details will be revealed down the line.“
Prototype was looking good and I think the delay might be the best thing for an open world game like this. I was looking forward to it this year but like I always say if the delay makes for a better game then I have no complaints.
