Activision Pushes Singularity To March 2010

Activision says the knell of anticipation for Modern Warfare 2's November 2009 launch is much louder than predicted -- and it fears Raven's Singularity might get drowned out.

That's why the publisher is moving Singularity's planned Fall 2009 release into March 2010, it claims in a newly released official statement.

Though it's unclear whether the game's state of readiness would allow it to launch this year, the move allows Singularity, a Russian-set FPS title with some unique time manipulation gameplay effects, to avoid the holiday avalanche, too.

"The level of excitement for Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2 coming out of E3 well exceeded our expectations and therefore we have decided to move Raven's upcoming sci-fi first person action title, Singularity, from 2009 to Q1 2010," Activision told Shacknews in a statement.

"We believe that the March quarter will provide a better opportunity to establish the new cutting-edge action IP as a 'must-have' title and clears the way for Modern Warfare 2 to dominate this holiday season," the company added.
