Free Radical talks about Haze delay
Free Radical decided to address the issue of the reoccurring Haze delays. They’ve also decided to mention a bit more info on what is going on with their hit-series TimeSplitters as well. Obviously, we, as gamers, dislike delays and would rather just play the game, but let’s be honest. If they released it now full of issues the backlash would be immense. So let’s just sit back and enjoy what’s to come.
The following is an excerpt on what Free Radical had to say on the issue.
“Soooo, Haze is delayed. But you already know that, don't you. Well, the simple fact of the matter is, any delay on a game is a good thing - it's more time to optimize and polish and tweak and generally improve the whole damn thing to the Nth degree. Now, I know that some of you patient folks out there will be bitterly disappointed. Some of you may even want to come to my house and smash a colostomy bag over my head, and I think most people would understand that sentiment, but believe when I say that the delay is the best possible thing for the game. Hell, the reason why you guys are so pumped about it is because you have high expectations, and we need just a little more time to make sure that we meet them. So in conclusion, rest easy - we're still slugging away on this badboy.
In other news, this week has seen several drafts and redrafts of the TimeSplitters 4 story outline being pulled around to see what sticks. As of today we might - MIGHT - have settled on something. Time will tell.”
As you can clearly see, they’re trying to make sure the game lives up not only to the hype we have given it, but to your expectations as well. Everyone on all fronts wants this game to be everything it could be and more. We’ll also try and stay updated on any possible TimeSplitters 4 information.
