Brute Force delayed until 2003

Microsoft reveals that Digital Anvil's Xbox shooter will slip to early 2003.


Microsoft has announced that Brute Force won't be out this November as planned. A brief statement explained that Microsoft has decided to "take a little more time and make sure the single-player campaign and multiplayer is perfect" and plans to ship Brute Force early next year.

Brute Force is the work of Austin-based Digital Anvil, which was founded by Chris Roberts of Wing Commander fame. The game will emphasize squad-based gameplay, and it features four characters with specialties ranging from combat to stealth. For more details, check out our previous coverage of the game.
