No interest in this AssCreed, but what does Sony have for later this year? I don't remember them not having anything for holidays in a very long time.

Yeah seemed pretty likely given the radio silence on its release. Bummer for those stoked for this holiday though...

Yeah it was pretty evident after the last Playstation direct had no clear release date, or even a release window.

Sony pretty much gave up this year.😂 The momentum from big releases like Halo and Forza will help the Xbox catch up to PlayStation’s worldwide sales in Q4 2021 and Q1 2022.

No big deal.

I'm just wondering what will make this game special given the big reveal and conclusion of the first game. Game play will not carry this franchise alone IMO. The story is what carried me through that game.

This is expected, no need to rush.

But the PS5 has no games.

Delay-station 5 has no games

All cows have for the rest of the year is hoping and praying Xbox exclusives get a bad GS review score

Physconautes 2 is the next Xbox studios game to hit PS at full price while gamepass subscribers lap it up as part of the service day one

This isn’t good news by any stretch, but it seems like everyone has forgotten that the ps5 have been on fire since launch as far as software library goes.

Hypothetically, even if say the game were finished and polished, strategically, there's no point playing this card too soon. I don't see that being the case but just saying it would probably be in their best interest to release in 2022 regardless just to sustain their current momentum, or give their growth a booster shot should it need it.

Wow. A massive blow for Cows. This was the only major exclusive they had the rest of the year. No holiday hit, nothing to counter Halo and FH5. Thank God I got a Series X too. Lems enjoying MSFS, The Ascent, and Halo Infinite this weekend, while Cows are just sitting there through the biggest gaming drought of 2021.

We'll see what Sony's holiday plans are in Septembers Playstation Direct. Still, hard to imagine them filling the void left by Horizon.

And what fire? Godfail? Returdnal? DLC Morales? A PS3 remake? I mean there really isn't much to rave about. I mean R&C is really the only thing sales wise that's worth a damn and I never could get into those games personally.

There is a 0% chance Halo is delayed. After a full year delay, it has to be ready for holiday launch. A delay would kill the game. Too many other shooters and great games on the horizon (if you will) to allow for this game to be pushed back and be acceptable.

Waiting? I have been actively playing my Xbox throughout the gen. Don’t get angry with me because you have nothing to play or look forward to.

Weren't @NathanDrakeSwag and @wonderwinner constantly bleating about how Xbox has no exclusives this year and lems had to wait until 2022 for anything decent?

Xbox just got Flight Simulator and The Ascent, with Psychonauts 2 on deck and Halo: Infinite multiplayer testing ramping up. Meanwhile, Sony gets... *crickets*

WaitStation 5 strikes again. 🤣

Lems - Enjoying Halo Infinite, MSFS, The Ascent.

Cows - Biggest title of 2021, their only saving grace, the only ace up their sleeve, delayed to 2022. Gonna be a rough holiday season for Cows. I mean maybe there's some Indies that'll be sleeper hits, a Cow can only hope. Wonder how many will just pick up a Switch or Steam Deck, something to give them something else to do.

The game is being publicly flighted and played by actual human beings right now, so its doubtful these delays will be a "tit for tat" scenario.

This right here. TLOU 2 and GOT were already delayed last year eventhough they were technically finished.

It always makes sense to delay a game, and polish it even further.

I'm thinking the strategy here is releasing Horizon in Q1-Q2 and releasing God of War in Q3-Q4, and then there is GT and a potential fourth big game.

This isn't a confirmation but if it does turn out delayed than Sony has no exclusive Christmas season games to look forward too.

A buddy of mine has been looking for a PS5 since launch without any luck. I told him the other day not to even bother with it. He has PS4 and just upgraded his PC. Even if Horizon came out this year... it's also on PS4.

I actually did just find a PS5 and XSeX in a store to buy just today though. First time seeing either on a store shelf. You could buy either with an extra controller and two games. Then they had marked up the system price as well, joining in with the scalpers. The bundles were $1050 after tax.

I disagree. Delaying it would kill the hype and people would get too focused on COD and BF to care for Halo at that point. Even though they're all releasing around each other, that's better than a delay. Delay isn't happening anyways.
