Ubi Soft Entertainment today announced that it will postpone the scheduled release of its upcoming stand-alone tactical action game expansion, Tom Clancy's Rogue Spear: Black Thorn, out of respect for the tragic events of Tuesday, September 11. Although the game's central theme is the fight against terrorism, the company has decided to delay the release of the game and make alterations to its content "to avoid stirring emotions unnecessarily and unwillingly offending the public." The game was previously scheduled for release on October 9. No new release date has been announced. Ubi Soft has not yet decided what parts of the game will be changed, but a representative from the company stated that anything involving airplanes and terrorism would be closely examined to ensure that it is appropriate for release.
Tom Clancy's Rogue Spear: Black Thorn is a stand-alone expansion to Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Rogue Spear.

It also includes a number of new weapons, such as the FAMAS assault rifle, as well as six new multiplayer maps. Tom Clancy's Rogue Spear: Black Thorn is in development at Red Storm Entertainment, the studio that created the previous games in the series.
