Brute Force delayed again

Microsoft announces that the release of its team-based tactical shooter has been pushed back to April 2003.


Microsoft has announced that Brute Force, which was originally due in stores this month and was more recently scheduled for release early next year, is now expected to arrive in April 2003.

According to Microsoft, the reason for the delay is to ensure that the game is as good as it can be when it's released. "Any game as cool as Brute Force is worth...the extra time," said Pete Parsons, director of Xbox marketing.

In development at Austin-based Digital Anvil, Brute Force is a third-person squad-based shooter in which players can issue orders to teammates who have their own special abilities. For more information, check out our previous coverage of the game.
