First it was Half-Life fans now its Star Wars fans this week. Two of the biggest titles from LucasArt's has been delayed till 2005. The two titles that have been delayed are: Republic Commando and KOTOR II.
Knights Of The Old Republic II and Star Wars: Republic Commando will not be released this year, it emerged yesterday, adding to the succession of recent high profile delays. LucasArt's two biggest titles are now down for a 'Winter' release in Activision's latest schedule, which on further investigation actually means February, as opposed to, say, November or December, sadly.
The squad-based Star Wars shooter that is Republic Commando was originally down for a summer release, and looks immensely promising, so there's disappointment all round for those looking for some Clonetrooper action. KOTOR II's delay, however, isn't so much of a surprise. In fact, Activision confirmed yesterday that it always had the game scheduled for a 2005 release.
