Rare-developed Kinect game no longer a launch title.

Kinect Sports Rivals, previously a launch title for Xbox One, has been delayed to spring 2014, Microsoft has confirmed.

The latest entry in the Kinect Sports franchise, Kinect Sports Rivals offers climbing, soccer, wake racing, bowling, target shooting, and tennis.

According to a Microsoft representative, the game was delayed for extra time to polish and release it without compromising its quality.

Thanks, Polygon.

    That was fast.

    and it’ll still be a crappy broken Kinect game.

    • AdamBoy64

      Yes. Better delay it another 100 years, just to be safe.

  • Willgaea

    I guess the gimmick factor was to apparent.

    Seeing Rare like this is like seeing a talented, kind-hearted albeit innocent and niave female friend get lied to by a fat corporate executive by the promise of fame and fortune only to get tossed into the street; raped and pregnant, and what’s worse she’s forced into contract so she can’t just stop.

    In case you didn’t get the (lewd) analogy, I fucking pity Rare, and it hurts; At least Grant Kirkhope is doing well.

      All the talent left from Rare a while ago anyways, now all it does is sell on brand name only.

    This game wouldn’t have sold on a $499 console. Maybe by Spring, there’ll be a price drop.

    JC Denton: What a shame.

    So what about those Xbox One/Rivals bundles? Not that I’d imagine many pre-ordered that one, but do those people get downgraded or lose their pre-order slot for an Xbox One?

    Oh and the pic looks like he’s celebrating it’s delay.

  • DarthBrian

    and nothing of value was lost.

  • adhesive

    preorder cancelled

  • MasterSensei

    OH NO! a game that no one was going to get has been delayed? It’s a crying shame…
