Warner hold back Matrix Online
The Matrix Online won't be out in January as originally planned, Warner Brothers Interactive division instead demonstrating their mettle and commitment to a first-class debut by delaying the release until the spring. The firm applauded newly purchased developer Monolith for having readied the game for a new year launch, but stated that the game would now benefit from the extra-polish. WBIE will be co-publishing the game alongside Sega. "We're going to do the right things, to be a studio that makes the right decisions for the product and for the consumer," commented divisional head Jason Hall.
Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment have a mandate to produce top quality licensed titles, as well as original content, and Jason Hall has been vocal in attacking the standard of some licensed titles in the past; stating that publisher developing such games which review poorly should suffer financial penalties. A brand fanzine being created alongside DC Comics was also announced by WBIE, who inform us that the new publication will be distributed to beta testers. More soon.
