SOCOM: Confrontation Pushed Back To 2009 In Europe?
Well, we never like giving our friends across the pond bad news - and things had been going so well lately, too! - but it appears that SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation has slipped into next year for Europe.
The solid online multiplayer shooter started out on wobbly legs due to a horde of technical issues, but has since stabilized and become one of the best online experiences out there. It has been available in North America since October 14, but has always had a "TBA 2008" release estimate for Europe. And now, according to European game site Area 51, SCEE has announced that instead of a late-November release (which they apparently had planned), they won't release Confrontation until early next year. That's when the game will finally make its debut in both Blu-Ray and digital download formats, so sadly, it seems Euro gamers won't get the chance to head online for some intense, realistic, tactical fun until 2009. Granted, we haven't seen an official announcement for this just yet, but then again, as we're based here in the U.S., we probably wouldn't see such a press release in our inbox. But if SCEE clarifies this at any point, we'll be sure to let you know; here's hoping they issue a concrete release date.
You needn't worry, though. There are a ton of great games out there for the holiday season (yes, even over there in Europe), so perhaps this is one title you can wait for. Won't it take at least some time to finish all these gems released in October and November, anyway?
