Modern Warfare 2 delays Singularity

Raven shooter slips to Q1 2010 to avoid MW2 "excitement"

Time-shifting shooter, Singularity has seen a delay to the beginning of next year - and it's all thanks to Modern Warfare 2.

Activision has said that the Raven-developed FPS has been pushed backed so that it can dodge the Modern Warfare "excitement" (and probably sell a few copies).

"The level of excitement for Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2 coming out of E3 well exceeded our expectations and therefore we have decided to move Raven's upcoming sci-fi first person action title, Singularity, from 2009 to Q1 2010," an Activision spokesperson told GameSpot.

"We believe that the March quarter will provide a better opportunity to establish the new cutting-edge action IP as a 'must-have' title and clears the way for Modern Warfare 2 to dominate this holiday season."

Probably a wise move that. Then again, now it's going up against Mass Effect 2, Alan Wake and whatever else decides to bail out of the Christmas massacre. Those time powers would come in handy in the publishing world...
