Following reports in the European press, VU Games confirmed to GameSpot that Scarface: The World is Yours has been delayed. The publisher said the game, inspired by the 1983 crime-epic film Scarface, will not be released until "2006," and the company did not specify a quarter or season. Less than two weeks ago, VU had announced the game would be released for the PC, Xbox, and PlayStation 2 this coming fall.
Speaking of platforms, VU Games also revealed that Scarface: The World is Yours will now also see a release on next-generation consoles in 2006. Later, a rep for the company confirmed it would be "an Xbox 2 SKU," but would say nothing of any other next-gen versions.
Like the film, Scarface: The World is Yours follows the criminal undertakings of Cuban-immigrant-turned-cocaine baron Tony Montana. Al Pacino played Montana in the film, and the game will feature the Oscar-winning actor's likeness, but not his vocal talent. Pacino's costars, Robert Loggia and Steven Bauer, will also lend their likenesses as well as their voices to the game. GameSpot's previous coverage has more information.
