Sierra Entertainment and Radical have delayed their upcoming sci-fi sandbox title, PROTOTYPE
The game was previously set to come out this year, but now won't see release until 2009.
The publisher and developer have cited the need to spend more time working on the game as the reason for the delay. A statement from them tells us, "Sierra Entertainment and Radical Entertainment have made the decision to shift PROTOTYPE
to launch in 2009.
"Since its announcement, PROTOTYPE
has been regarded by many as groundbreaking and taking the open-world genre in new directions, and in the simplest explanation possible, we need more time to deliver the game the team initially set out to create.
"Both Sierra and Radical are fully aware and appreciative of the multiple ?Most Anticipated Games of 2008? accolades and continued enthusiasm by all, however, date changes are common in this industry, especially for publishers and developers committed to launching great games. Further details on PROTOTYPE
?s 2009 launch timing will be revealed at a later date."
