ICO/SotC Collection Mysteriously Delayed Until 2012?
We waited on reporting this because we had hoped to receive some clarification. But no official reply exists yet, and we can't ignore it any longer.
For many, it's the most desired high-definition collection of the new generation; the ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection features two of the most treasured titles from the PS2 era, remade in brilliant HD. They'll also boast 3D and Trophy compatibility, and we recently heard Team ICO might even toss in a demo of their latest project, The Last Guardian. But as many of you already know, major online retailers don't seem to think we're getting it any time soon: both Amazon and Buy.com first changed the launch date to "Fall 2011" and now, it sits at a disappointing and somewhat vague placeholder of "December 31, 2011." And by the way, on Amazon, The Last Guardian has the same date...and that's not good news. We have no idea what might delay the Collection for so long; most such endeavors seem to come out on time and developers haven't really complained about the upgrade process.
So we don't know what the deal is just yet, but we'll be sure to let you know. If it really has been delayed, we'd certainly like an explanation...
