Alpha Protocol, Obsidian’s spy role-playing game which already received a delay to spring from its original holiday 2009 release, has been delayed once again. Now, Alpha Protocol is slated to arrive summer this year.
The reason for the delay?
“We had a few reasons for doing it,” Sega assistant producer Matthew Hickman told MTV Multiplayer, “One: We wanted to position it better, give it a lot of time. The main reason: We really wanted to polish the game up, make it everything Obsidian planned it to be, and give the consumer a very polished game.
“We added a couple of other things. Tweaks in lighting here and there, added the inventory comparison screen so you can compare what you’re buying to what you have equipped. Just bringing the whole quality level up.”
All delays are usually for good reason. With so many games coming out before summer, I don’t think this delay will be too much of a problem.
