Bodycount To Miss Spring Release

Codemasters continues to work on the promising shooter, Bodycount, but it appears they're going to need more time.

The game got a lot of attention when Stuart Black (of Black fame) signed on to assist with the creation process, but things haven't gone exactly as planned. As Eurogamer reports, Codemasters Guildford general manager Adrian Bolton has left the company, which seems to have resulted in the Bodycount delay. Codemasters CEO Rod Cousens says the over-the-top shooter will miss its scheduled spring 2011 release and now claims it'll arrive in early summer. At the same time, Cousens says the company isn't reliant on only one person and adds that he doesn't see Bolton's departure "as any threat to either the well-being of the product, the well-being of the studio or the well-being of the company." In Bodycount, players will assume the role of a commando who takes down enemies known only as "targets," all for the sake of a mysterious organization known only as "The Network."

Well, Bodycount does appear to be entertaining, and we'd be interested to see the final result. Still, delays are never good news.

Hmm, the story doesn't sound like it'll grab me given what I've heard about it so far, but the rest of the production sounds somewhat awesome. I may end up giving this one a rent whenever it drops.

Also, why would the departure of a single person result in delays, unless the guy taking over sees a different direction for the game. More details will come to light soon enough about this affair... they always do.
Peace.

Since it is made by the guys from Black I might check it out, but KZ3 will probably be chewing up my FPS time for the next year or so. It also sounds sorta suckish story wise and even though I love FPS I still need a good story to back up the action.

That sounds like a half arsed story if I ever heard one. Count on this game not getting much attention. Whatever happened to Bulletstorm or whatever? Aw who cares.

It's true. Delays are never good news. And the enemy being referred to as "targets" and the mysterious corporation called "The Network" is not good news either.

i was really excited for this, as soon as i found out black is working on it than it instantly sold me!
but the lack of news, previews, and the fact black left a few months ago...... this is looking like the new alpha protocol!
o, please, codemasters, please prove me wrong!
