Nobody likes delays.
And yet, if you really think about it, can you imagine this holiday season if everything originally scheduled to arrive had actually launched?
Look, we've already got a bunch of games for the holiday season and many of them are massive . Dragon Age: Inquisition , two full Assassin's Creed entries, Far Cry 4 , Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare , Destiny , LittleBigPlanet 3 , and Grand Theft Auto V for PS4 and Xbox One…yeah, there are countless hours of gameplay there, and that's hardly all the games currently available.
We know the titles that got pushed into 2015. Sure, it sucked to lose The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt , Batman: Arkham Knight , The Order: 1886 , Evolve and Battlefield: Hardline . But even if all these titles had released this year – and they would've all hit store shelves in the fourth quarter – how the hell would you have been able to play them all? This is precisely why whenever I hear about delays, the news is actually somewhat comforting. "Gee, maybe I won't be so far behind," is what I say to myself.
Honestly, I'm glad these delays happened.
