Well, you can officially throw Bizarre Creations’ power-up-laced racing title Blur onto the “delayed until 2010” pile. As we’ve heard from other developers whose games have been pushed into next year, Activision attributes the delay to wanting to give the game’s developers more time to “fully optimize the vision” they have for the game.
Fair enough. Plus, it will most likely result in a better game, so it's hard to disagree with the move. Of course, it also means that the game won't have to compete against the Activision’s surefire retail juggernaut, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, not to mention the other high profile titles coming out between now and the end of the year. Then again, 2010 is shaping up to be one of the most jam-packed years for gaming in recent memory, so we’ll just have to wait and see if the strategy pays off.
Do you think Blur will perform better or worse now that it’s been pushed to 2010?
