We were hoping to have two promising FPSs from Raven Software this year – Singularity and Wolfenstein – but it appears the former has slipped into 2010.

According to Joystiq , Activision has confirmed that Singularity is now slated to release in March of next year, simply because they want to make room for the massive blockbuster that will be Modern Warfare 2 . It's not the first game that decided to jump out of the way of the impending blockbusters; Quantic Dream decided to delay the highly anticipated PlayStation 3 exclusive Heavy Rain for the same reason. Said an Activision spokesman:

"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. 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."

Of course, now it will have to do battle with God of War III and possibly even Gran Turismo 5 , which isn't exactly an enviable position, either. We do have every confidence in Raven Software, though, and we'll definitely keep an eye on Singularity . Who doesn't want to manipulate time so as to gain the upper hand in epic firefights? It's just an awesome concept.

This game looks interesting to me, but I probably would have purchased it during the holidays before March with those two Giants coming out that month!

Good move I say. Hopefully this game gets some more attention between now and then.

Another FPS? Meh
I prefer games that take a lot of thought processing, complex stratgies, and games that are not FFVII (FF7).

You all know FFVI (FF6) is the best one. Quit lying to yourselves.

I've never played FF VI. What system is it on? Have there been any remakes lately? Might give it a go if I can find it.

FFVI is amazing. It was an SNES RPG (the best one) and was re-released on the PS1 and GBA.

I still want a new PSI OPS. Guns and mind-powers are simply a great mix.

I have my doubts "Singularity" can challenge Killzone 2. Killzone 2 is an amazing technical achievement and an amazing game to boot. I am not purchasing any further FPS for the time being until I have exhausted my Killzone 2 experience, which hopefully will last a long long time ūüôā

Just having much fun on it…

Which reminds me, I need to get selling the games I don't play anymore so I can get some money back for them, I can then go for the new exclusives coming out.

Q!

"i am home"

march is now going to be a mega month for gamers, it will be nearly as blockbuster filled as the holiday season with GOW III, GT5, heavy rain etc

They should hold this one for another year. Polish it up and release it next July or August. Nothing comes out in the summer. They would have the market cornered I tell ya!

I have a feeling this years holiday numbers will look like this:

COD (PS3) > Uncharted 2, MAG, NG: Sigma 2, Demon's Souls, etc

COD (360) > Left 4 Dead 2, Splinter Cell, etc

By ">" I mean sell more than. It sucks, but it's virtually a guarantee. Basically this is going to give Activision a blank check to create as many COD games as possible this gen.

And people will buy them! I am not buying mw2 I will buy U2 instead.

If I would have to choose one or the other, I'd buy Uncharted 2. I expect that the story will be far more engaging, and I don't need THAT many shooter games. U2's online is great too.
….but I'll probably end up buying MW2 as well.

MW2 just isn't my thing. Don't know why everyone's so hyped up about it; its just another CoD game, with a few additions that don't look like they'll really add much to the game (except for the snowmobiles; those look pretty cool). Obviously MW2's gonna sell more, but hey, its a multiplat; they usually do.

No, my money's on Uncharted 2 this holiday season. I bought the first one on the hope that it was at least a decent game, and it completely blew me away. And judging from what I've seen so far, U2 is gonna do the same exact thing.

I think a lot of the people hating on this game don't know much (anything?) about it. The comparisons to CoD and KZ are pointless. This is a game crafted around a hopefully great story, it's more like Bioshock (as far as I can tell) than anything else listed here.

so interpretation.
we think it will sell better going up against heavy rain and god of war 3 and possiably GT5.
ooooooooooooooookkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk.
now i know it activision is run by a bunch of monkeys.
i dident like MW but from the E3 demo im rely hyped, lets hope its not a let down because that snow lvl looked extremely cool.
and what their saying about being able to either use stealth and or go in guns blazing better be true.
because alot of games have claimed this and to my memory none have accomplished it.

is their a law governing when games can come out or something.
because in the 10 years ive been playing games i can only think of 2 big AAA games that came out before march.
killzone 2 and devil may cry 4.
why year after year theres barely any games out in january and a little more in febuary.
than march hits and our wallets grow a gaping hole allong with april.
may june so so.
august so so.
september october november is a over flow.
why not spread it out a little.
like since the 2nd week of june there has not been 1 game i want to get and there isent 1 till wolfenstiene and thats aug 5th.
thats almost 2 months with 2 or 3 games we had more than that in the 1st week of june.
