Ubisoft has confirmed that both Driver: San Francisco and Ghost Recon: Future Soldier will be delayed. While both titles were shown at E3 this year with a targeted release date this holiday season, both titles had already been bumped into early next year. Now, we learn that both titles have been again pushed till April of 2011 at the earliest.
According to reports, the delays are an effort to provide the developers with additional time to polish the titles before release to produce the best quality release possible. The decision was rumored to be a difficult one for the company, as the last couple of releases that the company has had didn’t exactly set the sales charts on fire.
If there is any bright spot about the delay at all it might be in the news that Ubisoft still plans a beta for Ghost Recon: Future Solider once it gets closer to release. It is unknown if Driver: San Francisco will also have a public beta, as well, and our sources tell us that this has yet to be determined.
