LOS ANGELES--While the 2010 Electronic Entertainment Expo has brought definite release dates for long-awaited software and hardware, fans of Bethesda's upcoming shooter, Brink, have a delay to take in.
London-based development house Splash Damage announced a delay for Brink this week at E3, revealing that the studio's shooter will now be released in spring 2011 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
Brink was first dated for spring 2010 when Bethesda trademarked the title. It later slid to fall of the same year. The shooter has been delayed again and is now penciled in for a spring 2011 release, which is 12 months beyond the game's original target release window.
As for the game, Brink is a squad-based shooter that was built to incorporate a system called SMART (Smooth Movement Across Random Terrain), which allows players to run freely through the game's environments. The game takes place in a futuristic floating city off the coast of San Francisco, and players can fight through the game's entire campaign as either the Resistance or the Security, the title's warring factions.
