Alpha Protocol delay is official
Paddy Power may be taking bets on the game being Christmas number one, but that has always looked like a distant prospect - Sega officially confirming the delay of Alpha Protocol, the game being pushed into spring of 2010.
We'd heard talk of the slippage previously, Obsidian tipped to address negative feedback around the game, but this is the first time the publisher has confirmed the move officially.
"Alpha Protocol is a new take on the RPG genre and from day one the team has been working to make Alpha Protocol a truly unique game for players to experience. We're very happy that Sega has made the decision to hold back the shipment of the game in order to give it the best chance at becoming the publishing success that we at Obsidian and our partners at Sega are striving for," Obsidian boss Feargus Urquhart tells us.
"Alpha Protocol has been a very promising title since the beginning of the development cycle," adds Sega Europe MD, Alan Pritchard. "By pushing Alpha Protocol to Spring 2010, we can ensure that the game will be released in the best commercial release window possible and will also receive the focus this true AAA titles deserves."
