    Although delays are annoying, I always prefer a delay to a rushed released of a mess of a game

    I had a feeling that a further delay was looming when they announced that Ubisoft Annecy would be coming on board for the project, it seems like they're constantly struggling on this one.
    Hopefully with the added manpower and extended time they'll have the resources to do some good work on it.

    This is partly why I wish developers/publishers would cut down on announcing their games so early on, they get people excited about something that sounds fantastic and then make the audience get grumpy by the extended wait... then when they do release the game, people expect the game to be nothing short of brilliant due to the extra time the development team have had.

    I can only imagine the waves of panic that swept through the upper offices of Ubisoft in the wake of Watchdogs and Assasin's Creed Unity's releases. That creeping dread as it dawned on them that yes, people did notice and they most certainly cared that the game looked nothing like those pre-rendered trailers they spent millions on for E3.

    It must have been glorious.

    Boom! Nailed it. I was excited about this when the first video came out, but will likely skip buying this as i'm just not interested anymore. I don't get grumpy, it's just my indifference gets to a point where I can't get excitied enough to buy it.

    Hype too soon, piss off your public far too soon.
    I was wetting my pants with excitement over this. Hopefully it'll still rock.
    Might be another Watchdogs, which though fun, wasn't amazing by the time it launche.
