Tribes: Ascend Will Be A PC Exclusive For Now

I was pretty ecstatic when Hi-Rez Studios announced in March that it was working on a new entry in the online multiplayer-focused Tribes series, Tribes: Ascend. A lot of you probably felt the same way. The game was announced for release later this year on PC and Xbox Live Arcade, but those plans have now changed. In short: the console version is not available... for now.

The change in plans is very likely the result of of the decision to take a free-to-play, microtransaction-supported approach with the game, a format that Microsoft has not yet embraced for its Xbox 360-based digital download service. Hi-Rez told GameSpot that the Xbox Live release will have to wait for now, but that it along with a PlayStation Network release -- PSN DOES support F2P titles -- could be in the cards eventually.

"An eventual XBLA version--and even PSN version--is not out of the question but neither will be this year," a Hi-Rez rep told the website.

It's a bummer to be sure for console gamers who are fans of the popular shooter series. Then again, with new Call of Duty and Battlefield games also coming "later this year," maybe the delay isn't such a bad idea after all.
